And I thought;
How important it is to keep our shadows in front of us. When we can face our shadows, accept them, deal with them, actually look at them, we can see that they are not us. They may be a part of us, of our life experience, but they do not have to define us.
As the sun moves up and down our shadows can change shape. They may have fuzzy boundaries or clear ones. They can be small, compact, or long and stretched out. Who we are as a person, at our core remains standing.
We can still walk, one step in front of the other, with our shadows. They do not have to take hold of us. Or stop us from where we want to go.
The light will always have our back.
