I was thinking about lighthouses. I know, right? I tend to think a lot. What is the purpose of a lighthouse? To light the way for the ships that are lost at sea to find their way to safety. Does the lighthouse leave its foundation and go out into the sea to find the lost ships? No, it stays solid, in one spot, and shines bright so the ship can find its way.
At points in my life, I feel I am both of these things. Sometimes, I feel like a ship lost at sea, and I am grateful for the people in my life who shine light so I can find my way. They don’t “come out into the sea and rescue me”. They stand strong, shine bright, but I still have to be the one to find my way to shore. No one can do that for me.
Some days I feel like a lighthouse, helping others to find their way. The part of this I am still working on, is to not go out and try to rescue or force my opinions on others. I don’t have all the answers and I can’t do anyone’s work for them. The only life I can work on is my own. But what I can do, is to be a light, to be a good support, to “be there” solid and strong.
We all have the ability to shine. Let’s shine our lights bright. The world could use more lighthouses.
