Lighting Your Flame

“At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us.”
Albert Schweitzer

Let’s think about that, this Thanksgiving week.

About all the times that your light went out—work evaporating, the loss of a dear one, addiction, a creative wasteland, illness.

Remember how you came out of it?

Chances are, someone—maybe even a relative stranger—saw something in you that you were unable to recognize right then.

It may have come wrapped in kindness or a hefty dose of tough love, but it came, at exactly the right time.

And your light was rekindled.

You felt validated. Inspired. Grateful.

What better way to ring in Thanksgiving?
