This week, I read a beautiful poem by Morgan Harper Nichols. I’ve read it before, but this week my soul must have needed it because it nourished me so much and inspired this piece.
She writes – “When you are exhausted trying to choose which door is best for you, and fear that if you do not make the right choice at a wall of a hundred doors, … slow down and remember, within the Light, you will not fail.
Once you begin to see how Light spills through no matter which door you choose, you will have confidence to meet any challenges that lie ahead.
And even when your mind is filled with questions, your heart is filled with joy, you are learning to see that in every corner, on every wall, there are lessons in them all and you are free to walk with confidence through whatever door before you that leads to new Life.
You have traveled so far, and you choose again today to walk in the Light”. – From the book All Along You Were Blooming
The Light can be different to each of us….. I’ll share in the video what it means to me and how I choose to walk in the light. And that even though there are many things each day that can steal our joy, it’s still possible to have a joyful heart.
I hope you enjoy this simple and peaceful project. You are loved!
