dancing through fire

I got the eye of the tiger, a fighter
Dancing through fire
'Cause I am the champion and you're gonna hear me roar

~ Roar by Katy Perry
Well. Maybe not so much roaring today. It is Sunday after all. Certainly, there will be a warmth to the day dancing through that fire.

Our Mother of Fire is that generous, self-assured woman who opens her home and hearth to you. She is the one who will be busy cooking or bustling about the house, but will be sure you have your beverage of choice and a shoulder to lean on if needed. Not for long though because she's on the move. Better to just tag along. She's good company and it's warm by the fire. Trust me, she's still listening while stirring that pot of chili. And she can think better on her feet ~ which means you get some pearls of wisdom along with that bowl of chili (don't forget the corn bread and cheese). She is your champion as well as her own. She won't let you flounder, but she will let you make your own decisions. There's only so much responsibility she's willing to take. Our Mother of Fire feels you're in control of your own life. Her deal is serving up a safe space to work yourself out, get out of your own way. With some chili and beer to boot.

So.

Step into the fire and dance. Know you are your own champion. Roar if necessary, but I've an idea it'll be an easier day than that. Be at home with yourself, be at home for another. You can manage more than you think. In fact, don't think, respond and act.
