Longer Days

“There are two ways of spreading light; to be the candle that ignites another or to be the mirror that reflects it.” Edith Wharton

Edith Wharton helps to remind people that a person’s purpose is not solely to ignite the candle within others. Many times a person simply should be a reflection of others light. Today is the shortest day of the year; tomorrow and forward until we switch the clocks back again next year we will enjoy longer days of sunlight. For myself I always find it easier to move forward when the days are a bit less dark. I can speak for myself only; but I do know of others who share my view that the increased hours of sunlight will increase motivation and inspiration. Edith Wharton helps to remind us that a person can be an initial igniter of others but they can also be a supporter of passing the light on to others. It is important for an individual to maintain motivation as they go through the different sections of the calendar year. Hopefully a person will find it easier to have a bit of a spring in their step with the beginning of the longer days. I am already looking forward to the warmer weather, but I know that we have had an exceptionally temperate fall and winter as of now.  I am positive that the weather will get far colder before it gets warmer but at least the days are getting longer. I always keep a goal of mine to reflect the light from others. I am always very hopeful that I am able to ignite a flame within many, but at the very least I am sure to continue reflecting the light which I receive onto others. I believe that Edith Wharton would be very pleased if she were to realize what I do. Daily if we can each seek to inspire others the world will be a brighter and more inspired place. As the holidays are upon us it is important to remember to spread joy as much as you are able in as many different ways as possible. There are always opportunities to spread and enjoy the joy that you are absorbing from various things this holiday season. Please try and remember that there are two ways to spread light and that by reflecting the light onto others is a definite and true way to continue to spread the light. This holiday season I am going to try and remember to keep track of all of the light that I come into contact with. I will do my best to reflect it onto others. I thank you for reading and as always would welcome any comments that you may have.
