The lighthouse

‘The lighthouse does not wander the world looking for ships to save, it just shines its light for ships’.

That is a quote I read today or something like that. The thing is there is so much of this ‘help others’ and ‘have a purpose’ and so on. Perhaps, if we just focused on our light, being the example, then we can be a light for others. Otherwise, how can we help if we have no light ourselves?
