Are you familiar with the Mythology or Legend of the Phoenix bird? It is a powerful symbol.
One that I have permanently etched in ink on my arm actually.
I never really show it. But I stare at it often.
It is for me. A reminder….
The Phoenix in Egyptian, Arab, & Greek Mythology of the long-lived bird, “When it feels its end approaching, it builds a nest with the finest aromatic woods, sets it on fire, and is consumed by the flames. From the pile of ashes, a new Phoenix arises, young and powerful. It then embalms the ashes of its predecessor in an egg of myrrh, and flies to the city of the Sun, Heliopolis, where it deposits the egg on the altar of the Sun God.”

Sometimes, when thinks arn’t working out as they should, or maybe you need a change, sometimes you just gotta burn the fuck up!
There is a saying that goes something like “you can’t steal second base while keeping one foot on first”. If you know American baseball you will get the reference.
Sometimes we are looking for change but still want to hold on to the thing we are trying to change.
It doesn’t work very well does it?
You gotta go all or nothing for true lasting impact!
Set that shit ablaze … you will be surprised at what emerges from the ashes
