Ever-Changing Reflection

Your pain is the breaking of the shell that encloses your understanding... It is the bitter potion by which the physician within you heals your sick self. Therefore trust the physician, and drink his remedy in silence and tranquility.
~ Kahlil Gibran

Writer's Workshop: Light my fire

This is what gets me going, keeps me alive. Mention any of these topics in conversation, and you'll have me going off on all kinds of tangents.

Skiing. Love it, committed to it, challenge it, dare to get better. Skiing for me is such an adrenaline rush, such a challenge, such a freedom. I've never experienced anything like it, and I'm so glad I was introduced to this sport. It is my winter mecca.

Morris. My pup. My furry best friend. My cuddly teddy bear. My baby. He makes me laugh, yell, smile, love, care, protect. He truly brings joy into my life.

Dance. Any kind, anywhere. Styles, gear, shows, performance, technique, shows, movies, music, images, choreography... I'll discuss it all. I'll share my love with you. I'll encourage you and teach you. This was such a huge part of my life for 16 years, and I can't let it go.

Self-improvement, faith, religion. I'm on a mission to be the best me I can be. I stumble, I trip, I fall, but I pick myself up, and I keep going. I research all kinds of foods, exercise, faith, psychology... all in the name of being better, being happier, being more fulfilled.

Relationships. These are the glue that hold my life together: family, friends, my love. Without the people in my life who love me, I am nothing.

This post was inspired by:
Prompt #4: What lights your fire? Describe five things you are most passionate about.

Sounds like skiing is what makes winter good for you! Morris is so cute!

Visiting from Mama Kat's Writer's Workshop. I used this prompt too.
