You wake up every day and decide what you will show the world.
Never revealing the secrets, the sadness, the longing and the struggles you hide.
Afraid to shine, you put on your mask,
(rather poignant at this moment in time),
and hide your gifts, your words,
your hopes, your beauty, your light,
from the judgement you fear.
You muster your courage, inhale and into the world you go, walking ever so carefully,
so you don’t disturb or offend anyone along your path.
Is it time?
to stop hiding,
to show yourself,
to share your light,
to share your gifts,
to share your words and your beauty,
with the world?
There will be those who judge you because they don’t understand, don’t worry about them, you don’t need them to shine,
you don’t need them to be yourself.
Then, there will be those who love you as you are.
These are your people.
They will wrap you in gratitude, kindness and lift you up so you can shine.
Healing begins when we accept ourselves,
as we are,
as we are,
step into the world,
as we are.
We shine brightest when we’re doing, being or become who we’re meant to be.
All you have to do is SHINE.
