You Are The Light Of The World…

“You are the light of the world. A city built on a hill cannot be hidden.” — Matthew 5:14

Life is difficult and messy, and often times a stark contrast from what people portray on social media (which is why I have had an aversion towards social media for so long. And honestly, I still do lol). But I am also cognizant of the power that social media has to create change. And this is why I post. If we use our platforms to spread messages of hope and unity — and even open up about our struggles and vulnerabilities — lives can be transformed in so many beautiful ways.

Lately I have been reflecting on some of the most transformative life lessons I have learned, and the one that really resonates with me is the importance of having a higher purpose. In order to find deep-rooted happiness and fulfillment, we must live for something greater than ourselves. Our life experiences were not given to us in vain. There is a purpose for everything; the good, the bad, and everything in between. These experiences can speak healing and hope into the lives of others, if we allow ourselves to own our stories.

With this in mind, I want to encourage you to embrace everything that has happened in your life.  Don’t be ashamed of your past, your mistakes or failures. Don’t be afraid to live and speak your truth. Healing happens — for yourself and others- when you are bold enough to share your story. So as we step into this week, I hope you are given a renewed sense of purpose, and the desire to be a beacon of light for others. May your life be a living testimony of faith, love, courage, forgiveness, and the resiliency of the human spirit.  And may you continue to shine no matter what.. because YOU ARE THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD.. and you cannot be hidden.

Sending everyone love, light and good vibes. Have an amazing week.

-Love Always, Char
