Yesterday I got on Periscope and talked about the definition of catalyst. The definition that I chose to focus on was from dictionary.com:
a person whose talk, enthusiasm, or energy causes
others to be more friendly, enthusiastic, or energetic.
That is part of my mission. To allow my light to shine so bright that others will be caused to be "lit" lol. To fire people up so that they can be their best selves. To inform, instruct and inspire; unlock the cage, unleash the fire.
So many people are stuck in cages or boxes that they've either put themselves into or that someone else has put them in. They become stuck in bad habits, harmful cycles, damaging relationships, etc. Until they become empty shells occupying the land and nothing more. Some barely functioning.
So many people dying full instead of pouring out what God gave them to the world.
My catalyst moment was a broken engagement. It followed a job loss and debilitating morning sickness. Initially it made me so mad and that's what fueled my steps forward. That changed shortly after (yet another post lol)
Soon I was setting goals and smashing them, operating from a place of peace instead of one of pain and desperation. That catalyst changed my entire life and those around me even though the situation itself didn't change. That didn't matter to me afterwhile because I had gotten the best end of the deal, I got freedom
