We are all lighthouses, bearers of the light which shines from within. Learn your lessons, grow, and clean your wounds and began to heal. Don't waste your life by allowing bitterness from harsh lessons to consume you. Your journey is not just about you. There are others who need our stories, our hearts, our healing balms, and our lights. There are so many lost at sea, searching for the guide that only a lighthouse, a light bearer can offer. Humble yourself, let compassion and empathy consume you. We may never understand the reasons for some of our storms. It is alright. Release the need to know why. Understand that no matter how dark it may seem the rain will eventually stop. Know that there is a lesson to be learned, and blessing to be added to your life.
