Thanks for the light

I ran another create your own quote contest on Twitter a few days ago, the prompt was "The light..." I am grateful to everyone who submitted, there were lots of great entries. The morning I posted the contest I was actually feeling a bit down which is quite rare for me, but when the entries began rolling in I was immediately uplifted by people's inspiring thoughts. You all definitely brought some light into my heart, thank you! Here are some of my favorites:

"The light is what guides you home, the warmth is what keeps you there." ~Ellie Rodriguez, @sapphiremoon13 (winner)

"The light of starry dreams can only be seen once we escape the blinding cities of disbelief." ~Shawn Purvis, @shawnpurvis (

"The light keeps us on the right path, shows us the present and gives us faith that the future is ahead - shining bright." ~Shara Day, @sharaday

"The light goes out on purpose sometimes so we can get lost and then realize we weren't even on the right path to begin with." ~Michelle Christine, @Shellzs333

"The light might seem unreachable - but there is still a little hope if there's a tiny little light inside your heart." ~Nina Cremer, @NinaCremer

"The light is always shining, to see it we must stop focusing on the shadows it casts." ~Kim Clarkin, @Kimberleyhaa
