Light as defined by Dictionary.com is something that makes things visible, an illuminating agent.
This little light of mine...I'm going to let it shine...shine on you and even shine on me.
So, here's the thing...one simple gesture...just a simple one...can make a difference in someone's life.
It's happened to me tons of times. A friend says something that just hits you and you see a little light from something they said...even though it was something simple...it added to your day. It made a difference...sometimes...more than they would even know.
I read something recently that said (paraphrased)...try to see the light in everyone you meet...even if their light might not be burning at all. The cool thing about this...is that the other person will see your light and it's going to bounce back and shine on them and maybe help them see things differently...you never know...that's the thing...we never know how our actions and words are going to affect another person.
We must remain cognizant and steadfast...and yes...breath. It's that little pause I have to take, when I'm about to get my heart racing because of somethings that are out of my control....and then...I breath...and the world settles down and calmness comes back to me. It might sound silly...but if it weren't for a friend who told me the way they get through life...is to breath...I'm not sure where I'd be right now. That sounds a little heavy, but that simple offering of passing on something that helped him...helped me too.
It's the little things...that change the world. I can get caught up in making a big bang and wanting to really change the world with my hands, but...the truth is...we all can change the world with simple words like..."have a spectacular day." It's kind of nice when someone goes the extra mile to be more than average with just a simple word audible. (audible...used in the context of word change vs. QB play change).
When Miss America says the proverbial, "I wish for world peace." Little did we all realize...world peace begins with me. If we all let our light shine...at least world peace can be a part of the world we choose to live in...maybe not the entire world...but affecting those that live in our own network of friends and family...that is how we change the world. So...go ahead...I dare you...just try and change your world that you live...let your light shine. What a wonderful world...it would be.
