“A thousand candles can be lit by a single candle and yet not diminish the first candle’s light. Happiness (or hope) is never diminished by being shared.” — Buddha
Sometimes the world may seem like a dark place, but there is more good in the world than any of us can possibly imagine.
Negativity gets more press, but there are far more people performing acts of love and kindness in this world than those few who seek to disrupt it.
These countless individuals are beacons of hope who often perform deeds without notice and without any expectation of anything in return, but no act of kindness, no act of bravery, no act of love, no act that instills hope in others is ever wasted.
So let your light shine.
You may never know when you are a beacon of hope or a source of inspiration to others, but it matters.
It always matters.
Be a candle. Spread some light.
