Liberation by Candlelight  Have you ever seen a candle burn out from lighting another candle? Do you think a candle can burn out from lighting hundreds or even thousands of candles across the globe?

Sharing the light of your candle is what you do every time you empower yourself, empower others, speak up for yourself, a friend, a stranger. Releasing your lows and sharing the highs that came after is exactly how you are sparking another light. It’s easy to think that you are not making an impact or maybe not the large impact you think you want or need to make but to me one candle lit is the world to someone else. Now for a minute think how many candles will come after that. ~

P.S Inspired by The One Project and the sweetest postcard, thank you Bryce!
