One of the hardest things, I believe, is to stand up for what you believe in, stick out, or be recognized. And if it happens to me, it for sure isn’t purposely.
It’s hard for me to intentionally do any of those things.
Something that has weighed me down, stayed in my mind, made me wonder, is how are you going to make a difference if you don’t do those things?
How am I going to make an impact, a change, a newness, if I do not reach out and take the next step?
I’ve wrote about being the light before but did I truly understand the meaning of that? Probably not.
I do not mean try to be center of attention by any means and sometimes being the change YOU want to see can come across as such.
Do it for the right reasons and the right things. But how hard, right?
To be the good light when all you see is darkness.
We see it in our everyday life, our schools, our community, our social groups, etc…
As I tell myself, I tell you. Be the light.
If you don’t understand where I’m coming from because sometimes I’m not so clear, I mean a smile.
A wave, a “How are you doing?” sincerely, a friend filled with reassurance, a student fueled ready to go, a member on board for anything good.
Be it. Today.
How much brighter this place would be if we could all shine a little light into each other’s darkness. We have to lift each other. And that isn’t something to be jealous or envious of. That is something to be proud of.
Something you should support and be all in for.
I truly enjoy seeing someone go up. I hope you do too.
