“Oh, these vast, calm, measureless mountain days, days in whose light everything seems equally divine, opening a thousand windows to show us God.” – John Muir
Whether we choose to see it or not, light is streaming all around us. In nature, in people, in our very being. What we focus on, what we look for, what we think about, what we have hope in becomes our daily reality.
Be honest. Were you content before the pandemic? Are you now? Will you be after? The illusive and perfect someday withers away our today. When you guard and savor joy, circumstances, other people, even a pandemic can’t take it away.
Be intentional not accidental in what you see, think and say. It is a daily decision and discipline to choose light and optimism.
Look for and allow the streams of light to break through the cracks in your life. Break open.
“There is a crack in everything, that’s how the light gets in.” – Leonard Cohen
