Lightning bugs (also known as fireflies) are remarkable and beautiful creatures.

There are over 2,000 species of these wonderful beetles around the world and they each have a distinctive way of using their little inbuilt lamps.

Some flicker.

Some glow.

Some flash.

The important thing is that they each shine their lights in the darkness.

It’s tempting to think that we have to shine our lights in the same way as everyone else.

But that’s not necessarily true.

You have different skills, different passions and live in a different situation.

There’s enough darkness and negativity in the world.

And you may think that any light that you emit won’t make much of a difference.

But it doesn’t matter how you shine.

It just matters that you do.
