A Season of Watching, Waiting, and Preparing for the Light

Share This

Whether you celebrate Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwanzaa, or winter solstice, it is a season of watching, waiting and preparing for the light. The symbolism is perfect for our lives as we often find ourselves in personal and spiritual darkness unable to find our way. As the old adage goes: It is better to light a candle than curse the darkness. In this season of lights, how can you figuratively light a candle in your life? Here are a few ideas: Volunteer your time to help others; reach out to an estranged loved one; rekindle an abandoned religious practice; start a gratitude journal; read/listen to some uplifting and inspirational books and music. Take steps to brighten your spirit and welcome the light back into your life.
