My friend Kris Taylor sent a great Christmas present to her colleagues and contacts. It was a flashlight sent in a round postal tube. It was the kind of present that created enough curiosity for me to actually read the enclosed letter. She shared a great story about how as humans we are naturally drawn to the light, but our greatest fears reside in the darkness.
“Total darkness is not knowing – what lurks there, where obstacles may be, and the uneasy feeling that there may be something that is a threat. It is in darkness that we exaggerate our fears, make things up, and imagine the worst.”
It is important to stay positive and engaged in the light. Enjoy the light that is in front of you and focus on the positives. Part of the fun is in the journey and in finding new opportunities.
