As we settle into the new year of 2024, let us hope for peace and beauty. For new growth. For sunshine. For color that fills our spirits. Let us kindle light where we can. In small ways and big ones.
Consider this quote from Swiss-American psychiatrist Elisabeth Kubler-Ross:
“People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is light from within.” -- Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
Given the dark times we live in, it’s easy to sink into depression when we read the daily news. But we must keep igniting our inner radiance. How should we do that?
Edith Wharton said: "There are two ways of spreading light; to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it."
