When one sits in the dark waiting for ole man sol to make his appearance things emerge from the shadows, things you may not expect. If one chooses one can see evil, creepy things lurking to pounce, but me? I was blinded by the light.
I boldly donned my sunglasses and stared straight into it. As the heat slowly radiated over me I felt a new sensation, one I had not felt for a very long time. I felt validated.
Not that I am anywhere close to where I want to be in this life but the light brought prospective. Prospective opened angles, angles I had neglected and are in us all but sometimes we need a light to see. So how did validation become so clear?
With perspective, nothing in this life is free and nothing can be taken from us we are not willing to let go of and perspective allows us to see this. I have people in my life who love, cherish and take care of me, I have neglected them.
I have not said thank you, nor that I love, cherish and hope to someday take care of them in return. I am and I do, this is so they know they are the validation I saw in that blinding light.
It became clear again that monetary and material gain has never been or ever will be what I seek from this life. It will be the validation of the smiles and emotions from those I have in my life, thank you, I love you too.
Not to exclude you, many of you fall in this category as well. You have spilled the beans, poked fun at, listened to and reached out with your own brilliant light, thank you my friends.
For Monday, may you be validated by your own blinding light.
