These are challenging times. One of the key disciplines of being a Creator is to see current reality for what it is.  You probably don’t need the newspaper or television or a blog like this to tell you that challenges abound.  Look at your own life and the life of those close to you.  No doubt there is no shortage of challenges – and Challengers.

It would be all-to-easy to be stopped or to stay stuck in the mire of misfortune.  However, challenging times are also times of opportunity and possibility – and a Creator chooses how to respond to the realities in which they find themselves.

A favorite saying used to sit on my desktop:  “Don’t curse the darkness, light a candle.”  While not denying the realities you face, recognize and place your focus on what is right or good or healthy in your life.  The fact that you are reading this means you at least have the time to pause and reflect.

What “candles” are burning in your life right now or are calling to you for lighting?
