“It’s okay to be a glow stick! Sometimes we have to break before we can shine.”
I have to admit, the first time I heard this, I had to chuckle. To even remotely compare oneself to a glow stick – is actually a genius perspective.
The more I thought about it, the more the statement made absolute perfect sense. I can’t speak for anyone other than myself…but for me, it took multiple breaks before I found the power to shine.
I think that for a lot of us, that’s what it takes. We must endure the hardest of the breaks in our inner most part of our core, and only then will all the understanding begin to run together until we are able to shine so bright that we can also light the path for others.
So, give some thought to this positive, and humorous analogy… Are you a glow stick?
