Rekindle Someone's Light ✨


Dr. Albert Schweitzer said it so well, "Sometimes our light goes out but is blown into flame by another human being. Each of us owes deepest thanks to those who have rekindled this light."

I love this quote by Albert Schweitzer because it speaks about being grateful to those who have helped to relight our flames. Our own light can go out for so many different reasons

It can be due to having a tough time settling in something new, death of a loved one, dealing with a sick parent or child, losing a job,  or even just getting sucked into the winter doldrums and feeling like we have nothing to look forward to, can make our light start to flicker.

Have you ever stopped to think about those people for whom you are grateful because they have helped to rekindle your flame? My list was (and still is) huge!

Who rekindles your light? Who blows your light into flame when it threatens to flicker out? Sometimes this person is a family member, sometimes a teacher, or a mentor, or a special friend. If you need the light of your spirit rekindled during this bleak time, there are those who will listen and care.

Likewise, a great and wonderful gift you can give is to fan into flame the spirit that is in another. Rekindling someone's flame is an important task we perform, for few of us can go it all alone.

The greatest weapon against darkness is, and always has been light. Even one small light is stronger than the darkness.

Imagine a person holding a lit candle that is surrounded by others who have unlit candles. The person with the light simply reaches out and lights the candle of another, then that person reaches out and lights someone else’s candle, and so on. You might have lost your light but someone may share theirs with you. Have hope.

Lately I’ve been thinking a lot about people who have entered into my life and helped make me “better than I am.”  

So, be a beacon of light in someone's darkness
Shine a little light in the world today,
Someone may need your brilliance,
To illuminate their way...❤️✨

Hope grins on the doorway of 2022♥️

The chilly winds on my face, the little mist in the air, red nose, cold hands, mom screaming take care oh, with December, the year comes to an end,  some tears some smiles, and i made one new friend.  The end of this year full of ambiguities is near, bringing the time to reflect what we reared in the whole long year, other than lament and fear. A time to reflect which do's and don'ts crossed our lines & which relations grew fine. What was learnt and what was taught. What was new and what felt like draught,  What engrossed within our hearts & what disappeared fast. What made us grateful & kind, What was love when cherished from distance, What was mirth when tried to express, What was gained and what was lost.  Was all a part of the year just going to pass. Falling again and again with consistency, Then bringing my life into existence, I learned that this world is here to tear you, Are you enough strong to create your own space, Only then, you can embrace,

Do Your Best For People, Not Your Worst✨

We often look at the speck of sawdust in other’s eyes, don't we? But do we really pay attention to the plank in your own eye? Well, not really! Why is it that as humans we often look for flaws in others? We often make quick judgements about someone's behaviour, & It's only later we experience an internal shake when we find out the real story Well, Everyone is fighting some kind of a battle and frankly we don't even have a clue what most people we encounter on a daily basis are going through. Sometimes the inner battles people fight, they just feel lost for a while, People come with all their taunts, they judge all the while, The seconds spent on judging others could be instead spent on loving them❤️ Why is it as humans that we have filled our lives with so much ‘stuff’ to keep us busy that we don’t have time to slow down and simply ask someone if they are ok? While we all go on personal journeys,we also must recognize that everyo

Yes, You are Beautiful ♥️

To those who feel they are not beautiful, Let me start with the brutal truth. Looks do matter. There are millions of people who will always judge you by your appearance. So if you talk about these millions of people, then you are not beautiful, in their eyes. I won't give you this fake hope that your inner beauty will dazzle them, and they will forget about your looks. No., you will never be beautiful for them, So that's the harsh truth. I'll give you an instance from my life, The first time someone commented on me regarding my simple dressing and thick glasses was at my cousin's wedding. And I was okay with it, I thought this is just the way people behave at social events, they comment on other people's dressing, and other people's laughter, someone's face, someone's height, weight, etc. Even if it is at the expense of someone's self worth. And with time, I myself started believing that there must be something wrong with the way I conduc
