There is work you do that only you know you do.
No one else is watching, no one else is asking questions.
Seeking recognition for this work would almost be impossible and unfair because by definition, it’s not seen by anyone else.
The only comfort you can take is that you’re not alone.
Everyone is doing work in the dark.
A question worth asking is, how will your efforts in the dark help you show up in the light?
Everyone can see you in the light, and yet in many cases, the light only shines on a very small piece of what you bring.
Make your time in the light count, by doing work in the dark.
