Monday Motivation: Be The Light!
Monday Motivation, 10.9.17
Written by: Tracy McGuire
Every Monday, The Rogers-Long Team meets for one of its two weekly meetings. The Monday meeting always ends with “Monday Motivation” in which a few minutes are spent listening to one team member presenting a quote, a quick reading from a book, a scene from a movie, or anything else they find motivating to provide a “spark” to the whole team on a Monday morning.
Be The Light!
“Be The Light”. This is the message that seems to be following me recently.
The events in Las Vegas on Oct 1st were horrific and honestly, it’s still weighing on my heart. I found myself continuing to turn to the news and waiting for answers that never come. I guess evil will never make sense. Watching how others are dealing with this tragedy motivated me. Keith Urban played a tribute in Nashville to the Las Vegas victims with a candlelight vigil, softly saying “Be The Light” and playing “A Bridge over Troubled Water”. Eric Church, at the Grand Ole Opry a few days after playing at the Las Vegas festival, talked about how difficult it was to get back on stage. He had been at the exact place where the incident had occurred 48 hours earlier. What gave him strength days was Heather. Heather, wearing Eric Church Choir tour t shirt on Anderson Cooper CNN, talking about Sonny (her husband that died in the incident). Eric Church was Sonny’s guy and they went there to see his guy. Listening to Heather, Eric felt compelled to write a song “Why you and why not me?”
Eric Church’s song quietly reminds us to fix what is broken in us and don’t let evil take away our light.
Be the light. Be someone’s strength. Count your blessings. Share yourself and allow your full personality to shine. Be genuine and caring. Be the light. It’s about community and putting light in the world. Keep investing in people-start a pattern now!
