We all have to face challenges in life. Sometimes we grow, sometimes we learn.
I had to face really bad things in my life. It is the way it is. I could have drown a lot of times. I could have just given up and I wouldn’t be here typing those words. Thing is, I am gifted with this spark, as I would call it, this will to live no matter what, this need to learn all I can learn. And I also have this strong temper, this fire that pushes me beyond my limits and makes me go further.
I survived cancer, I survived a toxic relashionship, I am surviving my daughter’s death. So yes, I guess I can be seen as a survivor. I now hope to live the warrior’s rest, and have a peaceful time ahead. But I also feel that this spark, this fire, is still burning high. I have no hate, I have no expectations. I am ready to face what may come, hoping that it will be positive things, knowing that I can face negative ones.
I will carry this fire within up high. Because this is who I am. And I will make it grow brighter by following my path on this journey.
So here is your challenge:
One card a week 31
Quote: « I survived because the fire inside me burned brighter than the fire around me. »
Pattern: snow flower
Here are the rules of the challenge:
- Each thursday, I’ll give you a quote and a pattern to play with. You can use both, you can use only one of them, it’s up to you.
- You have till the next wednesday to make your card and share it with us in the facebook group (just ask to be added, and I will open the doors wide open to you )
- The goal of this challenge it just to offer yourself a time to have fun with pens and cards, to ponder on words, to enjoy a ME time. We tend to forget about ourselves so easily! And sharing is such a beautiful thing to experiment in our life!
