We should all take heed of this quote for the meaning is awesome. We must set an example for our children and grandchildren by letting that light burn bright.

You are not responsible for the actions of others, you are only responsible of your REACTIONS! When someone else makes you react negatively, you are no longer in control....they are.

Increments... a match lights the torch. Work to keep the torch lit... one day at a time.

Time is allotted to each of us and as we move forward in life, let us remember not to waste it on the small (brief candle) stuff but to live it with as much zesto (spendid torch) as possible because once lost, we can not get it back.

This little light of mine... I won't hide it under a bushel - not any more. I will shine brighter and better soon! I am learning to help myself and I have friends who are helping me! Thanks you, Spark People!
