Welcome to light, our second focus of #MindfullyEnding2016.
Light is the radiance, joy and spiritual connection we feel when our worlds find harmony. During the holiday season, we see lights everywhere. They’re wrapped around the trees and hidden in our bushes, they’re floating on top of candles and flashing in streams of color. Light, both literally and figuratively, are supposed to fill our holiday seasons, but sometimes the absence of this light can feel overwhelming. I struggle this time of year sometimes, to feel that true joy that Christmas meant as a child. I think of all the plans we had, the decorating to be done, the treats to be baked and the crafts to be made. As an adult, there aren’t parents or grandparents hovering all the time, instilling this sense of festivity.
Prompt: We have to be the light for ourselves now, and for others when we can. We can bring the fun of the holidays back to the forefront with light, so today I want you to brainstorm and experiment. How can you be the light for yourself and others today? Is there an activity you could suggest, a movie you could turn on, or even a simple change you could make in the course of your day that would plant that little light seed?
