The Long Dark Shadow

The Long Dark Shadow

The Long Dark Shadow

The long dark shadow although visible, has not the substance of the object or person that casts it or the power of the light that causes it to form.

It may reveal the shape but not the detail. It is distorted and elusive, it has no existence of its own. Remove the  object or person and it is gone, remove the light and it is gone.

If you’re looking toward the light you can not see your shadow but it is still there.

You are not a shadow, you have substance and purpose.

Don’t live life as a shadow of yourself, be the person who stands in the light causing it.
