Often we forget the light we are to those in our lives, often we downplay the comfort we’re capable of giving, the security that accompanies us. I find it interesting that there are people that are quite literally warmth to everyone they know, and they’re blissfully unaware of it. Sometimes, these souls are even more than unaware, they even go as far as refusing to believe they are this. What makes this altogether more fascinating, is the fact that I’ve often been accused of doing this same thing, and so while I sit here writing about someone in my life that cannot see the strength of their own light, I probably do the same in theirs, at least I hope so.
We have a problem in recognizing things in ourselves worthy of our pride. We struggle to acknowledge that sometimes, we get it right, and sometimes we are a source of such beautiful comfort to those that waltz into our lives. There is a time and place for grand gestures, over-the-top displays of love and affection, but there is also some stunning alchemy in the simpler ways people show up for us. A voice the reads to you before bed, a foot under the sheets finding yours, a glance across a crowded room when you’re feeling overwhelmed, a phone call when you’re lonely.
My advice today: thank those that are this in your life, but also, feel a bit of pride (even if it’s hard) that you are this in the lives of someone else.
Will you read to me
softly in your moonlight voice?
Will you light the dark?
