I can’t change your life directly —
only you can do that.
No matter how much I try to convince someone —
they’re not going to listen to me unless they decide to.
But we can change lives indirectly —
by being an example.
by letting our actions speak for us.
by showing, rather than telling; living rather than wishing or hoping.
If you need me to be, I’ll be your lighthouse.
A lighthouse shining the way to excellence, and a life of meaning.
I’ll be your lighthouse.
That may sound arrogant, I know nothing (jon snow) in the grand scheme of things,
but I’ll do my best to live by example —
by seeking the answers, and living the questions.
If you want to be, you can be a lighthouse to —
that’s also a decision you have to make for yourself.
