noun: pilot light; plural noun: pilot lights
1.a small gas burner kept continuously burning to light a larger burner when needed, especially on a gas stove or water heater
When I was running with one of my bulls today (my buddies), we talked about the purpose of the pilot light. He is a co-owner of a restaurant and I thought “what would happen if the pilot light went out at his restaurant? Would the world end? Would people not know what to do?”
Of course the world wouldn’t end but what if each of us had a pilot light inside of us that went out and we didn’t even know it.
Would we still have our creative spark?
Would we still whistle while we worked?
Would we still pursue our passions?
When you are feeling down and out, do a quick pilot light check and continuously pursue your dreams.
…. And if it’s out, surround yourself with a bunch of people whose pilot lights shine brightly.
