thursday’s thought

life in blush thursday's thought_spreading light

Happy Thursday blushers!

I was out with one of my best friend’s last night chit-chatting about life, and what we wanted for ourselves, and was reminded of this quote by Edith Wharton. It can be interpreted in so many ways, depending on what you’re seeking at that moment, but what I derive from it is that we’re both candles and mirrors at different points of time in our lives.

When we are strong and see our path clearly we are the candles that help guide others through their darkness, and when we’re struggling to navigate life’s choppy waters we become the mirror looking to reflect the light of others. When you’re the ‘mirror’ don’t forget to surround yourself with the warm glow of positive ‘candles’ for it is they who will emit light into your shadows and allow you to become a ‘candle’ right alongside them once more.

    So beautifully said, Sonja, and so very true.
    It’s also a good reminder that we change, there’s an ebb and flow, and sometimes as we are raising our own vibration, we need to seek out different candles. Much love always, Lovely!

    • I knew this would speak to you 🙂 Hope you had a great weekend love! xo

  • Margie

    Yes, both at different times, and sometimes even both in the same day!!!
    Well written post as always 🙂

    Thought provoking and beautiful again. I agree, we are both at different times, even different days, ha.

    • haha sometimes I feel like both a candle and a mirror on the same day. Hope you’re having a great week love! xo

  • This is a good thought. What I like most about your blog is you cover more meaningful topics, not just natural beauty.
