I had to get ready for work by candlelight today. The power was out in our neighborhood this morning, which was unfortunate. Putting makeup on in the dark is an adventure.
Yet the little light provided was sufficient. And while I appreciate enough lighting to properly apply my eyeliner, I recognized that I didn’t need a flood of light to do so.
So often I expect the good things in life to come in large quantities. I want a flood. The more the better right? But sometimes, we need to go without to realize how little we really need.
