With everything that’s going on in today’s world, it can be so hard to get overwhelmed and over consumed with the dark that happens right outside our front door. For me, I get caught up in the “did you hear…?”
So how do we avoid the dark? We find the light.
There’s so much of it to be found. It’s just that sometimes it doesn’t shine as bright. So here are some of my favorite ways to find the light in life.
Friends bring out the light in the world. Every time I spend time with my friends, I see joy, laughter, and the light that shines through them. Imagine how much gloomier life would be without people who bring so much life to life!
Focus on the little things in life. On days where I feel like nothing is going right, I refocus my attention on the little things that I can be thankful for, and it can make all the difference.
Be the light. If you can’t find the light, why not be the light? Showing up for people, being honest and raw with them, finding or creating a community. These are such easy ways to be the light. I guarantee you, if you are the light, you’ll make such a difference on someone else’s day.
