Shine your light

If the world around you seems too hectic and frenzied, be extra calm, peaceful and patient. If the world around you seems too greedy and selfish, that’s the time to be extra loving, giving and sincerely compassionate. If the world around you seems too confused and aimless, be extra focused and purposeful.

The world outside reflects back to you the energy you give it. If you don’t like what you see, you have every opportunity to change it by changing the way you are.

When you’re a beacon in the darkness, your light will shine for a long, long way. When you’re the difference that makes the difference, your efforts will bring abundant fruit.

If things around you seem to be at their worst, that’s when you can accomplish the most. Shine your positive light in the face of negativity, and you will change your world.
