Your Dormant Days are Over

Dormant. The word hangs like an eerie cloud in my head.

When I think of the word dormant, a volcano comes to mind.

A dormant volcano is an active volcano that is not erupting, but has the potential to erupt again. It is a sleeping or resting volcano, and there are many dormant volcanoes that are currently dotted across the globe right now.

How often are we like dormant volcanoes? Think about it! Where we have so much potential in us, so much fire, so much vibrance, so much passion, and yet we shut off to all of it. We become numb, even desensitised, to erupting.

What saddens me is we get acclimatised and comfortable with being dormant. We become stuck in a rut where we don’t enjoy much, neither suffer much because we live in the grey zone that knows neither triumph or defeat. We become dormant volcanoes.

But we aren’t made to live sleepy, snoozy, or dormant lives.

There’s nothing more dangerous than an active and fully awake volcano- just like someone who is actively pursuing their future, and who is fully awakened to their goals and ambitions. They cannot be stopped.

I believe we can’t afford to waste another minute. It’s time we become sick and tired of being sick and tired, and start stirring the fire that we have inside of us, getting ready for our personal eruptions of passion to take place.

It’s time we start seeing ourselves for who we truly are. Not as small piles of dirt with no worth, but as powerful, and influential volcanoes that have the potential to shake the world.

It’s time we ignite our passions, and erupt in greatness – which is what we are created to do!!

When eruptions happen, they rumble and shake the earth. The loudest volcanic eruption was in 1883 and was so loud it ruptured the eardrums of people 65 km (40 miles) away, and was easily heard 4800 km (3000 miles) away.  Wowzers.

That’s a fact! But here’s an even greater truth: you have a specific set of skills that have the ability to rumble and shake a nation –even a world– for good.

My prayer is that all who read this, and even all who don’t, decide that their dormant days are over, and that there is no time like the present to start igniting your eruptions.
