Let Your Light Shine!
After some blustery winter gales and cloudbursting rainfall around Christmas in this part of the world, the new year has started off with a couple of clear and sunny days.
Right at the beginning of my first walk of the year (on which I took the above picture) I came across an outdoor bulletin board of the Free Protestant Church in our area, saying:
I am the light.”
I choose to take this as a sign post.
These days we see and hear a lot about New Year’s resolutions. While those might work for some, they are not exactly my personal cup of tea.
I prefer to look at life a bit differently. Instead of changing behavioral patterns because one should do it in a special way at a special time, I prefer to change unhealthy patterns into healthy habits because I really feel that (and when) the latter is better for me. Instead of kicking off the year by focussing what I don’t have and what I am not, I prefer a start that allows me to focus on gratitude for what I have and where I am.
How about starting the new year by shining my light by being who I am – and allowing myself to be that I am to the fullest?
I prefer to go with that.
How are you starting your new year?
Much love and a Happy New Year,
