Is your life like my bathroom light fixture?

By Dale Robert

"This is a new one" you are thinking to yourself right now! Hear me out on this one, I think you will be amazed at how right I am! I made this comparison this morning and just had to share it with the world! You too could be living with a dim light in your daily routine, whether it be work, a relationship, your business, or any other host of activities, and you may not even be aware of it!

This morning I was getting the house ready for company stopping by and I noticed that one of my bathroom light bulbs was burned out. I have 2 fixtures with 3 light bulbs each, so 1 bulb being out is sort of hard to notice. But then when I screwed the new light bulb in, the room light up what seemed to be 100x brighter than it had been in some time! It occurred to me that the bulb hadn't just burned out this morning, rather, it had probably been out for some time. But through the daily routine and the bathroom being fairly well lit anyway, I just went on with my business and never stopped to analyze the situation. Literally, when I put the new bulb in, it was like seeing myself in the mirror for the first time; this new bulb (same wattage and everything else, mind you) was that helpful!

Where is the burned out bulb in your life? Are you in a job that you haven't liked for some time, but you are too caught up in the daily routine to change it? What about that relationship that you are no longer excited about? Or how about your business being just 'status quo' and doesn't really seem to be as bright and clear as it once was? There are literally hundreds of things that could qualify as burned out light bulbs in our lives, but with enough bulbs lit, we hardly noticed the ones that are burned out!

My challenge to you: this New Year, examine all of the light bulbs in your life and find which ones are no longer as bright as they once were. Granted, things like a job, a relationship, a business, are a lot harder to change than a actual light bulb, but make a commitment to yourself, along with a plan of action, and get those light bulbs changed!
