This little light of mine

So many of us fight like flames on a candle.  We burn and burn, pulling at the oxygen to let us glow brighter and brighter, unaware that our wick eventually burns out.  The more we leap and sway, the faster we burn.  The world flying by as our wax drips faster and faster.

Rather than living as a candle, I challenge you to live like the Northern Lights.  These brilliant beams of colour come out in the darkest light and shine.  They dance across the sky and you can almost see them breathe - inhale, exhale, dance!

Rather than fighting and fighting to burn brighter, try taking the time to breathe and dance like the Northern lights.  Resting and restoring before coming out to shine again.

  1. I love the analogy/comparison between Northern Lights and ourselves. Your posts always challenge me to think of things in way that I've never thought of them before. Thank you for that Vanessa.
