While working out a plan for blogging more often, one of the prompts I decided upon is “How do I feel?”, and let me tell you…lately, it’s despair. I was scrolling through quotes on Goodreads about despair, and this jumped out:
“When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants and murderers, and for a time, they can seem invincible, but in the end, they always fall. Think of it–always.”
― Mahatma Gandhi
I sit, reading Twitter frequently, holding back tears and the screams that long to be given voice…and then, when I’m just about to burst, I remember that I can do something to help.
I send light.
It’s a simple thing, it helps me feel better, and it definitely helps the other person feel better. When I remember to “be the light”, I become the light. Does that make sense? The light fills me as it is flowing through me, and for that space in time, I am the light and I feel calm and joyful and filled with hope again.
I would love to help you feel hope again, too, even if it’s just for an afternoon. Here’s how to get one!
