Step Out of the Darkness: Is It Time to Change the Lightbulb in Your Life? A Must Read!

I was taught one of the profound life lessons as I was changing a burned out lightbulb in my hallway light fixture. That fixture uses two bulbs and one had burned out a long time ago – I had gotten used to the dim light in my home. After installing the new bulb, I noticed how much better I was able to see myself in the mirror, but also the dust in the corners.

The same applies to the "rut" of life. We need to stay "in the light" and keep improving and growing in life. Take notice of the dust bunnies in your life and clean them out. And replace any burned out lightbulbs that may be dimming your vision of your life.
