Light the World ✨ 2017


Light the world.

We need more light on this Earth. This is why I love the Light the World initiative, and anyone can participate! 

The challenge is to light the world 25 ways in 25 days- aka every day leading up to Christmas, find a way to do something for someone else.

Look around you. Who needs help or could use some light? A neighbor, your lonely grandmother, a friend, family member, or complete stranger! 

One thing I love about lighting the world is the mentality it brings. Yesterday (Saturday) we ran around doing errands for a while. Knowing I wanted to light the world, I kept looking for ways to help people. I saw this old lady walking. She walked so slowly and couldn’t stand up straight. She sat down near Nick & I and I just kept wondering how I could brighten her day. This may seem anticlimactic and it probably is, but when she looked up, I made sure to smile at her. We ended up being done with that errand, so we left shortly thereafter. I wish I could have thought of something more to do, but I loved the fact that I was simply in a different mindset. On a regular basis, how many old, sweet ladies do I simply let walk by me?

If you’ve never heard of this, or even if you forgot- start today with me. It can be anything good- giving flowers away (which is what we did yesterday), writing a thank you text, baking cookies for neighbors, donating clothes or food to shelters, or calling your cousin!

It not only makes the world brighter, it will make you so happy! 

Light the world. ✨
