“We must bring our own light to the darkness.”
I was thinking about you. I thought that I would drop by to remind you that you are the light of the world, and you matter. Contrary to what you may feel when you lie down to sleep, you light the darkness that consumes the world. You don’t have to lead the masses, be a superstar, or become the best [fill in the blank] to have a significant impact on the world.The news doesn’t have to report your actions for it to hold a key place in the advancements of society and life as we know it. For what it’s worth, I believe your existence alone can influence goodness and positive change. If you are perfectly you. Time will validate 2 things for you.
- Trying to be someone else is an utter and complete waste.
- It is better for your health to spread goodness instead of hate.
You are needed as you are and you are all beautiful souls. I’ve seen your messages, and what moves you. You have hearts of gold and volunteer for things that honestly makes me want to fly out, meet you, and hug you. I love compassionate people who stand up for what they believe in. People who reach out to lift others up, whether educationally, politically, or neighborly. You are truly special. So beautiful to me, and that work, no matter how small or large, matters equally. The act of being selfless is lost on many, and found for just the right amount – for now. You’re changing that. Through your crafts, your career choices, your activities taken in your spare time. It’s absolutely splendid.
For those who will no doubt say, “What about me? I don’t do that kind of stuff.” I will say to you…You still matter. Even if it’s on a more intimate level and you are the type to help your immediate family only, you’re still looking out for someone and extending a kind hand. You still open your heart for the sake of the next person. Lend your emotions and your mind to an individual who needs you. Something as simple as something you tweeted can show that you have consideration for people and/or their emotions, which matters. Having that inner light matters. You don’t have to take action on the highest level, although it is awfully nice if and when you choose to.
The bottom line is you are the light of the world. Even in your daily lives, you are a guiding force for another entity. It may not be clear to you, but try to remain conscious in what you say and do. Happiness is one of the many things that is contagious among us, and one of the few that provides unbelivable strength and courage. Be someone else’s light this month. Pull someone from a dark place, enlighten a close-minded friend, express a side of you that can ignite a life-changing passion in someone else. Be for someone what you once needed. Be their light.
