I recently encountered this lovely egret standing in a field of wildflowers. I was struck by the purity and intensity of the light that surrounded him.
As I watched him, I had some thoughts.
I realized that worry has been my close companion for a while now. I've been holding my breath, unsure of what will happen next in our turbulent world.
As I gazed at the egret, I took a breath and let myself feel the light. My body and mind relaxed, and the relief was overwhelming.
It was in that moment that I truly understood that the light is always there…waiting for me to choose it. And with light comes hope and comfort and love and certainty that all is well no matter how it seems.
I’m grateful to the egret for the reminder to choose light...
