My light would not shine bright if it wasn’t for those who keep things real with me, who let me dream and who share their light with me.
My heart is always thinking about how to share light with others so that each of us feel loved and included
Every morning when I am taking my son to school I always say to him as he’s getting out of the car, shine bright and share your light.
We never know who might be needing love and kindness today. Let’s be real we all need it everyday.
Who needs to feel the warmth of your light?
It sounds easy but some days it can be hard to share your light on days when you simply aren’t feeling it and when you question your purpose.
This week I was reminded by a loved one, a friend and my son that my light shines through all I do. I need to continue to share light even on days that I feel unsure or question my why .
I was reminded this week that my light shines because of the light others share with me.
Sharing light to me is defined as being kind and loving to all people.
Kindness and love go a long way.
To some it may seem childish, a waste of time and not actionable.
And if you disagree with me that is okay. I will still turn my light towards you and do the Cara (Care) Bear stare. All you 1980s kids know what I’m talking about but just in case.,,
One of my mentors use to always say to me and my peers, to receive the love you need to give the love.
Today I say to you...
To receive light you need to share light.
I was reminded of this from a dear friend on Sunday, a loved one Monday and during a car ride on Wednesday with my son.
When you find yourself needing to be affirmed, maybe you need to shine your light in the direction of others and have a little patience. Sometimes we may share our light and wonder why it’s not reciprocated. Then bam you receive a message from someone unexpected wishing you well.
I am reminded in small moments, not big moments that my faith during times of change and transition will not always be smooth but God will show up to remind me to stay the course and keep with it. God reminds me to be the light and the presence of my faith is always with me.
I am blessed to receive light from loved ones, friends, and colleagues who fill me up giving me strength to share my light.
Give the love that you have received to those around you. You must love with your time, your hands and your hearts.You need to share all that you have. - Mother Teresa
