First, I want to thank everyone for all the birthday wishes yesterday. It was a great day. Perfect in fact.
No presents, just time with my family. We went to the city that we are retiring (from the military) in and visited family. I felt totally energized afterwards.
And I felt like my flame had gotten stronger. Even though I can’t forsee our future, I know that it will work out. I don’t have a new job yet, but we have plenty of time to not rush anything.
I don’t know the area well, but my wife grew up there. We are surrounded by family and they are stoking our fire. Providing us with unwavering support.
I have not lived and worked in the civilian world in over two decades. But I have faith that it will work out. The flame of confidence and conviction in me is burning bright. I can feel it in every fiber of my body.
The feeling is so overwhelming that you know you are on the right path. Regardless of the obstacles trying to extinguish your flame, you continue to press on. Always protecting your flame.
If you don’t do anything else this weekend, work on your fire. Protect your flame.
What are your plans this weekend to become better? How are you going to enrich your flame?
