There are countless sparks yet to be ignited in my life. However, the moments and people yet to be experienced do not lessen the value of sparkle already created. A quarter of my life has been written. I have experienced a lot of joy and, at the risk of sounding dramatic, a lot of pain. But the human experience is about feeling both. How would we know joy without pain, and vice versa?
I know that resilience can provide us with the brightest sparkle. Even at my life’s darkest moments, I have found myself resilient; making my path even brighter than it was before. The difficult moments I have faced make the easy ones filled with laughter even sweeter. This page is about the sparks that have already shaped me. Most of the sparks I will depict are bright and sweet, and some will be those darks moments when cultivating sparkle is easier said than done.
