A Single Ray Of Sunlight
I engaged in some reflection yesterday. And this analogy is what stuck out at me most.
I think the thing I’m most proud of about 2020 was that I was able to cultivate and nurture this beautiful, warm ray of sunlight within me. I spent months growing this light. I pushed forward through the clouds making breakthrough after breakthrough but failing too and learning lessons along the way. And when I broke through the last cloud I saw that all around me there were these other scattered beams of light peaking through but it was still mostly dark. With heavy, looming clouds and rain all around me. I did my best to shine brilliantly and consistently and toward the end of the year the clouds started to part as more sunlight started passing through. And that’s where 2020 ended for me. And where 2021 began.
Last year was an incredible journey for me. I appreciate those of you who supported me actively along the way. And I also appreciate those among you who I haven’t heard from but who have watched and read and followed along the way. I know you’re out there. Thank you for noticing and for taking the time to read and ponder.
