Finding your way in the world isn’t easy. It takes so much time keeping yourself alive, that it’s easy to forget that staying alive isn’t the point. We don’t stay alive, but we do leave a legacy. Life isn’t about the day, it’s about the feelings we leave behind.
When I was a kid, I heard adults talk about time speeding up as we age, as an older person, I find this to be true. The days go by like a filmstrip, frame by frame. Each day we get the chance to share compassion, love and strength. We go through these days sharing ourselves. I try to release the sunshine from my soul, but I also find that I’m full of storms. I do my best to keep my storms in check, but they are there inside me. I wish I was the person that I try to be, but I’m me trying to be better. Trying to make the most of my days here. Trying to share the sunlight. Today is the time to let the unimportant slide and focus on the sun. “This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine!” Let it shine. Let it shine. Let it shine!
