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.
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.
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.
In the hopes of reaching the moon, people fail to see the flowers that blossom at their feet. ~ Albert Schweitzer
Quote of the day.
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. 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.
