Shine your light

“As we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our fear, our presence automatically liberates others”
Marianne Williamson 

To shine your light during times of uncertainty is one of the greatest gifts that you can give to someone else. It takes courage, resilience and faith; that even a small gesture of kindness can create a ripple of optimism.

It doesn’t have to be big, it doesn’t have to take a lot of effort and it doesn’t have to be impossible for the technically challenged, but it starts with creating a spark, having a thought, and making connection to another.

We take connection to others for granted. It isn’t until we are mandated to socially distance from one another that you realise how much you rely on the energy from your friends, family, work-mates and for me at Glow, our community, to make a day great.

Allow me to shine my light for a moment and give you permission to do the same. The more love we feel inside us and the more positivity we create and gift to others can only make this time more bearable.

Here are some tips on staying connected to others for you to have FUN with.

  • A simple phone call just to say hello
  • Leave a note under someone’s door
  • Send a thankyou note (ref. ‘365 Thank Yous‘ by John Kralik)
  • Send an email
  • Mail a card or gift to someone
  • Send flowers to someone
  • A Facetime, What’s app or Messenger video call
  • Organise a Zoom dinner party or drinks night with friends
  • Start a Virtual Book club
  • Send a fruit and veg box to someone
  • Set dates and times to watch the same TV shows/movies with someone and message each other your thoughts.
  • Social Media Group chats
  • Join in on a Live-stream fitness class or Art class
  • Cook and deliver a meal to someone
  • Organise a Virtual Game night
  • Organise a supermarket queue date with one of your friends

Stay in touch, stay connected, share the love and shine your light.

Don’t underestimate the power you have to improve another person’s day.
