Seeing the Light

"We are each gifted in a unique and important way.  It is our privilege and our adventure to discover our own special light." ~Evelyn Dunbar
The last month has been very busy with much to do, decide and understand. It has been a time when I didn't know where to turn, who to trust or what to do next.  A time of both fear and relief.  Fear from not knowing what the future holds as well as relief from knowing that some things have to change... even if it's not the timing I had planned.

I've been wanting to find the light for a while... however dragging my feet, making excuses that 'after this' I'll do 'that'.  Sometimes my well intended plans happen.. sometimes they take longer than they should.  That's when I believe that 'God' kicks us out of our comfortable 'dark holes', into the light and back into life.

I'm still not completely sure about what the future holds or what and who I should trust.  However, I am getting some very strong guidance and direction whenever I crawl into my 'dark hole' of solitude.  That is were I pray, think, meditate and listen for the answers to come to me.  For a new perspective and understanding to go along with new ideas.  Seeing the light at the top of my solitary hole... opening myself up to a new and even better life.  Of that, I am sure of!
"A sensible man will remember that the eyes may be confused in two ways - by a change from light to darkness or from darkness to light; and he will recognize that the same thing happens to the soul." ~Plato


  1. I hope you find your right path to follow!
    Big hugs,
    xo Catherine

  2. You are doing the right thing! Follow the Light

  3. Just keep moving forward. If you wait for perfect circumstances, it'll never happen.

  4. I'm totally and completely enthralled by the subject of light vs darkness... Take courage, the light always leads to greatness! :D

  5. Funny how God tends to kick us out of our comfortable hibernation of dry staleness to where we can grow and bloom into the person He wants us to become.

    What a beautiful post sweetie and I pray that the light will rise up to meet ya!

    God bless ya and have a most amazin' day! :o)

  6. Even I is afraid of what the future holds for me. Whenever that thing strikes, I am really afraid but I keep holding on to the optimistic thought that everything happens for a reason.

    Everything will turn out the best result for a better person like you. Just continue in following the light.

  7. Well when you are done with that light send it my way. And I am very trust worthy. :)

  8. May you never be alone in your quest. Two books come to mind during such times of searching: Sue Monk Kidd, "When the Heart Waits" (which I just finished last week and am still pondering before writing a review) and M. Craig Barnes, "Yearning: LIving Between How it is and how it ought to be"

  9. Encouraging post Coreen. thank you for sharing. May God continue to guide you. Blessings.

  10. you will find your true route in the end dear, your confident and wise xx
