“Some women fear the fire, some women simply become it”– r.h. sin
When you think of it, fire doesn’t let anything stop it in its path (except for certain materials, buts lets avoid the technicalities and focus on the bigger picture). Fire will go where it wants to go, not asking for permission and technically not stopping until the oxygen is stopped being supplied to it. That’s how you should be. You should not let anything stop you, you should do what you want to do and never ask for permission and not stop until the end!
The fire shouldn’t be something we fear, yet here we are scared to ignite it. Why? Because for centuries women have been told to suppress the fiery burn within us, the spark just dying to be ignited. There was no place for a woman in the world other than in the house. But guess what? Times are a changing’ and things are not at all what they used to be.
You have the right and the duty to ignite that spark within you, whatever it may be. You have the privilege that many women before us did not have. You have the privilege to become the fire. Don’t fear the fire, never fear the thing that will make you the best version of yourself.
Fire is what led to our survival all those years ago. Even today, more metaphorically speaking, the fire inside of you is what will keep you afloat, happy, surviving, but also thriving.
Become the fire.
You are the fire.
Thanks for reading and have a wonderful day!
