People Skills: Letting in the Light

Ring the bells that
still can ring;
Forget your perfect offering;

There is a crack in everything;
That’s how the light gets in.

— Leonard Cohen –

This quote inspired me today – there is a crack in everything! Okay – so I’m not so bad, unusual or silly. There is a crack in everything – that’s how the light gets in. Good news!

So hopeful – the light – the Divine – the source – it’s in me and in you. So what are you going to do about it?

In your work today can you accept more light in all your cracked places? Can you understand your gifts and what you can give your clients and customers – can you shine some of your light on them?

People with a lot of cracked places have a lot of light – coming in and if we choose – going out –

I challenge you today to accept your light – we don’t’ need to worry about our cracked places – let’s call them all gifts so we have greater light – and to shine all that light outward onto everyone you meet and serve today.

Forget your perfect offering,,,, and be you, glorious, light filled you. It’s enough – it’s plenty!

Remember that there are many resources for you at

Blessings, Shawna
