We can all agree the world appears to be getting darker and darker. The news if full of doom and gloom.
What can we do about it? We can make a huge difference during these dark times by being bright lights of hope, peace, love and joy for ourselves and for those around us!
I had a thought the other day that if we can be brilliant flames we can ignite others to be brilliant flames, and they can ignite others to be brilliant flames until our whole world shines like a beautiful bright star! I pictured it like we are a candle with a bright flame and we light others (candles) with our candle flame, and they light others with their candle flame, etc, etc…. until everyone shines brillianltly!
How do we shine brightly and then light others flames? We shine brightly by being authentic and living with passion and joy in our lives, contributing to others and our planet. When we are successful and living our dreams it can get contagious! Have you ever been around someone who is happy and successful? They are so inspiring that it inspires us in our lives.
It reminds me of one of my favorite quotes by Howard Thurman:
Being alive is our flame, our bright light! When we are successful, living our hopes and dreams, people will be inspired by our lives and that is lighting their flame. Walking in the light of love, peace, hope, kindness and joy are also flames of light!
Be the light. The light extinguishes the dark!
In the Bible John 1:5 it says the light shines in the darkness and the darkness can not extinguish it!
The brightest light of all is Jesus! Let Jesus shine through you today!
