good morning everyone! I hope you’re enjoying your long weekend! I have a busy one full of family, friends, & a bridal shower today. I hope you got a chance to check out my [guest post] from Laura yesterday – isn’t she adorable? Gosh, she is FULL of light & it is contagious!
Today I just wanted to send a little message your way. The other day I was, of course, watching The Chew! I absolutely love this show & it would totally be my dream to be on it one day Anyway, they were featuring bloggers & I loved hearing all of their stories! They asked one of the bloggers what her best advice would be to other bloggers and she said,
“Embrace what makes you different.”
This hit home with me because, as you know, I always say “BE TRUE TO YOU” & less judgment – more acceptance. “Different” is not always a bad thing – I think different is #WHATSBEAUTIFUL about each and every one of us.
This week I also had my weekly chat with my soul sister Heather & she mentioned about letting my light shine through – I kept repeating this over & over again any time I needed a jolt of motivation. Hearing both of these sayings in the same day was a sign that I was meant to share that message so I took a smiley selfie for a reminder to myself to not let anyone dull my light.
Most often WE are the ones who dull OUR OWN light because we think we are “not good enough” or our dreams are “too big” and we’d never reach them. Ever have these negative thoughts? I know that I have & whenever I do, I think to myself, “Don’t let anyone dull my light – I was meant to shine.”
When I say “shine” I doesn’t always mean being center stage under the lights with a lead role, especially since whenever I was in musicals growing up I always just wanted to dance & be in the group chorus BUT we all have “different” gifts inside of us that we are meant to share with others. The more we are positive, the more likely we are to shine & therefore make those around us shine.
What’s Beautiful is letting
your own light shine to others –
no matter how “different” your shine may be.
Enjoy your weekend!
