What gives you light?
This may seem like a weird answer, but I’ have to say it’s when people, friends, family find me worth investing their time in. I know that’s a pretty broad definition, but when someone HAS invested their time in you, you KNOW it. You feel it. It energizes you when they look into your eyes and see you for who you are and love you all the same.
That’s hard to do over the internet. A little easier over the phone. Texting is a lazy way to give someone your attention. But I want to say there are so many folks on Word Press that have infused me with light that I am truly blessed! Linda, Fimnora, Ruth, Shannon, Colleen… I could go on and on.
I bet you didn’t know you could be a purveyor of LIGHT, did you! But you can because we’re all wounded and YOU have the ability to help that LIGHT get in and seal up some of those cracks!
I love what the Japanese do with broken things. It’s called kintsugi, or “golden joinery,” which is a method of restoring a broken piece with a lacquer that is mixed with gold, silver, or platinum.
That’s what happens to us — when the LIGHT gets in…
So what do you think? Can you help someone replenish their LIGHT today? Let us know if you do!
Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack, a crack in everything
That’s how the light gets in
(Leonard Cohen, Anthem)
