Light Up the Corners of Your World

Does anyone ever feel overwhelmed with the suffering in the world and at the same time like nothing you do matters? I think it’s normal. We all have these moments. I think the key is to not feel like it’s your responsibility to fix it all and to find the courage to do more of what sets your heart on fire. The courage to be great. To shine. I used to be scared of letting my light shine. Scared of being good at anything. Until one day I realised it’s my goddam duty to let my light shine so it shines a little on people around me. To light up my little corner of the world by, for example, running pottery classes from my studios. Sharing the healing I myself have found from clay. Stephen Cope, in The Great Work of Your Life, says ‘Each of us feels some aspect of the world’s suffering acutely. And we must pay attention. We must act. This little corner of the world is ours to transform. This little corner of the world is ours to save’. Have a beautiful day everyone.
