Dear Readers, Thank you for subscribing to The Spark.
My name is Casey Hersch. I am a licensed clinical social worker and founder of LightYourSparkle.Life. As many of you know, I live with autoimmune
illnesses and have a history of childhood trauma, which are my inspirations for the Light Your Sparkle community.
Everyday miracles occur and we assign meaning to everything that happens. However, most of the time we only look at the surface. If we stop for a minute and pay attention to the bigger picture, we find that the universe is always working for our greater good even when the outcome is different than what we expect or think we need.
Recently, I experienced a family crisis, and I made a checklist. Although I got a lot of work done, I missed the bigger picture. As I looked at the surface for answers, I felt more disappointed about my life. I asked myself "why me?" I missed even the simplest details such as not seeing my husband's charming face and how much he needed a haircut. I didn't hear my cats Pawso and Samba cry for affection. I missed my family's messages that my choices for them were not what they wanted for themselves.
When I stepped out of my own way and looked at the bigger picture, I saw so many miracles in my life I could appreciate. I found options that I had not considered and even more opportunities to grow.
