“Keep your face always toward the sunshine – and shadows will fall behind you.” – Walt Whitman (American Poet)


Your calling shines as light, but that light also casts shadows.  Pursuit of your calling beckons you to turn away from other things.  Pursuit of your calling sets you on a path to accept those who will criticize it…or you.  Pursuit of your calling derives discipline and commitment beyond what is normal.  Pursuit of your calling reveals a path only you might see.

If we want the light of our calling, our purpose… we must accept the shadows that come with it.

But we must trek forward, facing toward the light of our calling, knowing the shadows will always fall behind us.

Pursue your purpose.

Commit to your calling.

Be the blessing others need you to be.

Embrace that shadows are a result of living in the light.

May your light shine brightly.
