What does it mean to be a beacon?

A beacon can be a number of things, but the image that immediately comes to my mind when I hear the word “beacon,” is a lighthouse, and the symbolism behind it. It’s the glimmer of hope when sailing through a storm. It’s the light to guide the way back home in the dark. A sign that you’re not too far away.

I’ve always had a fascination for lighthouses growing up. Maybe it was the coastal vibes that I craved, maybe it was my obsession with the ocean as a desert dweller. I’m honestly not entirely sure. But I loved lighthouses, and I think it’s mostly because of the symbolism.

The world around you could be in complete darkness, but that light can still be found as far as 20 nautical miles from the shore (yes, I had to Google that.) And I find beauty in that fact.

Maybe you’ve been lost at sea, carried away by your thoughts. Wondering if you’d ever make your way back after the storm, wondering if you read the compass and coordinates right. But then you see that beacon. The light circling around, reminding you that you can make it back despite the wrong turns. That you don’t have to be stuck.

That’s what I think of when I think of what it means to be a beacon.

So when I say, “allow me to be your beacon,” I’m saying, “allow me to be your glimmer of hope. Allow me to be your guide.”

Whether your journey has been filled with absolute chaos and the world has become dark, or you simply need a little light to remind you where you’re going, I’m here for you.
