“Today we shine
Tomorrow we shine
The next day we shine some more
The future is brighter
Because we illuminate it”
Here’s to the spark that lives within you and sharing it with the world.
We are each created to shine in our own way.
We each have gifts and talents and beauty.
We each have passion, and ability, and dreams.
We each have struggles, and woes, and hardships.
We’re different and that’s ok... it’s even more than ok, it’s a part of the beauty of the world.
We each have something to share with the world in the way we were created to, called to, and in only the way we can... and y’all, that’s pretty amazing!
And if you’re feeling dim think about what makes you feel alive and joyful, what scares you, what pulls at your heart strings, what you love- embrace that, live that, and shine that in the world because the world needs your light!
This little guy shines bright in so many ways but in none of the ways I thought he would when I was pregnant with him and one of the biggest lessons being his mom has taught me is, that life may not look the way you envisioned, and that is ok. And that every person is so beautifully unique and can’t fit into a scripted box.
And it takes a whole lot of courage and heart to let go of the script (for ourselves and for others) and to step out as who we are, wild heart, soft front, strong back (that’s borrowed from Brené Brown) and know that who I am, imperfect and growing is exactly how I need to shine and share and love in the world.
from one imperfect mama, woman, human to all the others out there- be courageous today and believe that YOU were created to shine bright! Let others inspire you, encourage you, some may eve guide or mentor you, but you find and choose the path you’re meant to travel and share... and then let’s teach our Littles to do the same, to look within, not out, to find who they are and who they are meant to be!
