When I think about onions I’m always reminded of how they’re the one inanimate object that are always used in illustrations about layers. But it’s true: it’s the one thing that the deeper you peel, the less different it looks, but you get to the core of what it really is. The aroma becomes more pungent. The layers become brighter. It becomes more moist. All of the flavor is at the center of the onion. You have to peel back the layers to get to the core of what you need to provide the most flavor. Don’t be afraid of getting to the core of who you are or what you’re supposed to be. It won’t look any different: you’ll be afraid, have setbacks, experience victories. But the deeper the layer, the clearer the purpose of your vision becomes. If you find yourself staring into the face of a dream you never thought you’d dream, or can achieve, realize that sometimes necessity is the mother of reinvention.
