Lighthouses represent strength and resilience. They are built to withstand the harshest of conditions.
Lighthouses represent safety and shelter. A safe place to be in the heart of a storm.
Lighthouses represent hope. The first sight of a flashing light on the horizon will tell you that all is not lost.
Lighthouses represent navigation. Guiding you through difficulties.
Lighthouses represent selflessness. Making sacrifices for the greater good.
Our job as parents and role models is to be there to guide our next generation through this journey called life, to light their paths. Although ultimately the choice is theirs, you can light their paths as bright as possible for them.
I’m a true believer that those who have the ability to hold space, to make an impact, to make change, ultimately have a responsibility to do so.
I have learnt that healers don’t necessarily have to heal anyone, anyone that is but themselves, and in turn they empower others to do the same.
With Real Talk I absolutely knew this was my calling, this was my passion, this was my purpose in life. To be the tallest, strongest, brightest, inextinguishable lighthouse for our rangatahi and beyond.
Being kind to those around you makes you a lighthouse in the truest sense—others will look to you for direction. Stand in your mana, stand strong and proud, but please don’t hide your light. You might just be the lighthouse needed in someone else’s storm.
I have had soooooo many lighthouses in my life, too many to name. Please know that I am truly grateful for you all. You are the reason why I do what I do, you helped me in my time of need, and it is now my mission to do the same for others.
In life, sometimes it can feel like it’s just you against the world. Please know that we are watching, we are inspired, we gain power and energy from the path that you are lighting, just by being you.
May you find and become the lighthouse.
