Radiators and drains


The people around us affect the energy around us. Some radiate. Others drain. Positivity, hope, strength, love all grow with radiators and wilt with drains. Who are you letting into your life? What energy consumes you? And who are you being for yourself and others? If we keep taking, from others and from ourselves, we’ll soon realise we have nothing anyway. If we keep giving, to others and to ourselves, we’ll soon find much more than we hoped to have.

Recipe for happiness

  
You can be anyone and still be happy. You can be anywhere and still be happy. You can do anything and still be happy. There are no set ingredients and no set recipes for happiness. No matter what family you’re born into, what your past looks like or what mistakes you’ve made, you can still be happy. It’s about being true to who you are, being grateful for what you have and being hopeful for what is to come. Be who you want to be and do what you want to do, and happiness will not be far behind.

Dawn

  
When it is light, our world thrives. When it is dark, our world hides. Sometimes our light – our hope, positivity and happiness – is swallowed up by the darkness. We become paralysed by fear, sadness and pessimism in the darkness. But why, when a new dawn breaks out of the darkness each day, do we not believe that a new dawn will break for each of us too? Look beyond the darkness. Have faith in the light. It will pierce the darkness – but you’ve got to keep your eyes open.

The message of Christmas

merry-christmas4

As we gather together to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, let us pray for the world he came to save, that all its people may recognise their responsibility for its future, and may be inspired by the message of Christmas to work together for the establishment of justice, freedom, and peace everywhere; and for all in special need: the sick, the anxious, the lonely, the fearful, and the bereaved; that the peace and light of the Christ-child may bring hope and healing to all who sit in darkness.

(From a carol service at Westminster Abbey)

Let yourself shine

make-it-shine-web

You are the sun shining by your own light and illuminating others too. You are a lighthouse piercing your light through to those lost in the darkness. You are a disco ball sparkling more vigorously than a thousand lightbulbs. You are a lightening bolt stamping your mark on the world. You are whoever you want to be and more. Don’t forget it. And don’t waste it.

Things will get better

It will get better

Things will get better. Sometimes we feel swallowed up in darkness. Sometimes we feel constrained by heaviness. Sometimes we feel nothing at all. Sometimes it passes and sometimes it lingers. But it will get better, if we believe it will get better. If we wallow in our sadness or anxiety or fear, it will take over our life. But if we have even a little faith that life can be different, that life can be better, we open ourselves up to it. And life will get better.
