Light and dark, there are lines of light and stripes of shadows in every aspect of life. There are times and areas of excitement and times of rest. There are qualities we like and qualities about ourselves we may wish to shift.
Yet this contrast and these different things help to give us character. The stripes of a zebra may be in full view but we all carry these stripes. And today I am in awe to see all the beautiful stripes and lines that adorn my home as the morning light streams in.
I'm grateful for the reminder of my lines and stripes. I'm grateful to see the light areas and the areas of shadow. I'm grateful for how the sunshine looks, streaming through the blinds and onto my vision board. I'm grateful for the pattern it makes as the sun comes in and lights the white spindles of the railing. I'm grateful for my dog who is not laying by the window and has transformed herself into a zebra with the sun stripes. And I'm grateful to see this simple beauty and find meaning within it.
What shadows and light have been showing up in your life? How can you embrace both aspects of yourself and your surroundings?
May today grant you the patience to see these messages. May you find peace within the embrace of your whole being. Have a beautiful day!
