The Lights in the Darkness by Jina Wallwork
I can focus on the darkness, or I can focus on the light. When both are present, I can see myself with more clarity. I learn about who I am through facing both suffering and joy. I understand more about the people around me because when there is darkness, they bring their light, and I notice the shadows of what they’ve been through. They share their wisdom with me, and I look with such intent on those shadows because I know how much they fought to obtain such strength. Still, it is just a shadow, and its shape changes as people move forward.
