Where do I look for the light? Well so many of us look outward to others or outward toward religion. But I look for light within myself. That although times can be dark, I can always look inside myself for a part of me that is light, that is hope, that will help me reframe the darkness so that I can feel whole again. Sure others and religion can be teamed up with yourself, but I find that if you are feeling down or are in the dark, it's up to you to find the solution deep within yourself. Just think back to a time when you were happy and feel what that feels like. Then bring it with you into the present and embrace it, embrace the feeling, make it yours.
So often people think other people or religion has all the answers but I know I am the person who has the answers. It's more realistic to me. That I am the master of my emotions, I am the one who can make a choice every day to be positive or be sad. When you take the responsibility for yourself and your emotions, it makes it easier to see where the fault is, within yourself. It makes for more empowerment when you see that your attitude is all about you, that you own it. That you can make the change into a life where you are in charge of your destiny.
