9/1/17 - Shine Steadfast

“Lighthouses don’t go running all over an island looking for boats to save; they just stand their shining.” – Anne Lamott

Since us humans have such an infatuation with certainty and all the safekeepings that come with it, it seems as though we ought to nurture this itch we have if and when possible. What better way than to be the foundation yourself? After all, the most coveted friends, lovers, and teammates are steadfast.

Here’s what I mean. In that same way that Anne Lamont’s lighthouses don’t go running around looking for boats to save, we ought to be the rock that we want in our lives. Who better than yourself to be the most reliable, most stable being in your world?

Are you thirsty for consistency? Show the world what it means to be constant. Do you want hope? Make it yourself. Are you clinging to anything that resembles stability? Be an agent for stability. .

To be that lighthouse, you’ll need to drop the quest for glamour. Show up regardless. Lighthouses show up no matter what. After all, a front runner can’t be a rock for themselves let alone someone else. Far too many people are available, but only under certain conditions. Anne Lamott’s quote is begging you to be reliable beyond circumstance, for a lighthouse shows up to shine in all conditions.

Shine your truth without conditions and clauses. I beg you to shine steadfast.
