Morning Blues

I was thinking about going for a run this morning, but instead I woke up way too late. Now my nose is doing the running! Catching a cold is very annoying, reduces my productivity to about 50% because 50% of the time I’d be blowing my nose.

However 50% is better than 0% right? So that’s no excuse to be doing nothing, although I may not be able to do as much, I can still do something! Sometimes we just feel like doing nothing and we justify it by excuses such as, my laptop is in for a service (my PowerBook is being serviced at the moment) or that person won’t mind if I don’t share with them.

At Youthopea we learnt about being the light of the world.

“You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden.” – Matthew 5:14

I AM the light of the world, it doesn’t say that I might be the light, but I AM!

So I’m going to choose to shine as bright as I can, no matter how sick I get. From this I hope to encourage everyone to do the same, because that is the only way we can live our lives to the fullest. No matter how big or small you light is, don’t hide it, because event the tiniest ray of light can overcome darkness.

This little light of mine,
I’m gonna let it shine
This little light of mine,
I’m gonna let it shine
This little light of mine,
I’m gonna let it shine
Let it shine,
Let it shine,
Let it shine.
