This life of ours can be tough. This world we live in can be so ugly. Among the many, many beautiful places and things on this planet… so many people are going through hard things, unfair things, devastating things. It’s easy to feel helpless, like there’s nothing we can possibly do to relieve any of this suffering. And in some cases, it’s true, we can’t. There are wounds that only time heals and injustices that we can’t fix and hearts too broken for words or hugs or good intentions to mend.
But there is something we can do, no matter what. There’s a quote I love that says something to the effect of “do what you can, with what you have, wherever you are.” In other words – Be the light. Spread the light. Sometimes the only option, the only thing we can do to help, is to bring positive, loving energy to a situation. While it might feel like you’re not making a difference, trust me – you are. The energy that we give off is contagious. Go out and be the light.
