I believe that I share a responsibility to motivate and provide optimism for others. Each of us is seeking validation that we are special, and that others can view our unique qualities. Therefore, it is necessary for each of us to share, verbalize, and bring someone else’s uniqueness to light. How simple and easy it is to spark a light in another’s life, and how easy it is to bring compassion, validation, and warmth to another. It takes fewer words and less energy to honor another than to belittle, degrade, or isolate. Light up a life, and your own flame will grow brighter and stronger.
