There is a children’s song that I learned as a kid and have taught my grandchildren. Part of it goes, “This little light of mine, I’m going to let it shine.” Letting your light shine, no matter how dire your circumstances might be, is an important part of adding value to the lives of those around you. Here are a couple quotes on this important subject:
“There’s always going to be bad stuff out there. But here’s the amazing thing – light trumps darkness every time. You stick a candle into the dark, but you can’t stick the dark into the light.” – Jodi Picoult
“No amount of darkness can overcome any amount of light. Even the smallest, weakness amount of light is a beacon in the midst of darkness.” – Eldon Henson
Just when things seem darkest, your light can make all the difference to someone else, or, to yourself. When we focus on the positive, our blessings, and the good in people around us, the darkness we face tends to fade. Yes, I don’t know what darkness you might be facing right now, but I can assure you that things always get better in the daylight.
So, take a look around you… are you in a dark spot? If so, find that glimmer of light. It will make all the difference in your outlook. And, if you live or work around someone facing the darkness, you just might be their only opportunity for light. Remember, “This little light of mine, I’m going to let it shine.”
I’m hoping that everyone reading this today is in a good place. But, if you are not, please know that others around you care and will provide a hand to lift you up, if you give them a chance.
Have a fabulous, wonderful, and most terrific day!
