Light in the Darkness

28 Dec

“I know it’s so easy to focus on your struggles, to let them submerge your mind, surround your day with hallow negativity, and restrain you from seeing beauty. I know what it’s like to want to lay in bed all day, and not face the day. But pain is inevitable, misery is optional. Fight for your happiness, realize you deserve it. We complicate our life so much and it’s exhausting. Be grateful for all that is going right, focus on that and trust in the universe to aid you with endurance. Never let yourself forget that there is always light in the darkness.”

Habari Gani? Ujima!

28 Dec

Ujima means collective work and responsibility!

Light the previous candles in the same order that you lit them before, and then light the green candle on the far right using the black candle.

Ujima means to build and maintain out community together, and make others’ struggles and problems our own so that we may solve them together. We reflect on what this means to us…then we eat, ha! See a theme?
