SHINE BRIGHTLIKE A DIAMOND
You’ve always known.
Deep down in your heart you’ve always known the truth of you.
What lights you up… What fills you up… What lifts you up…
At what point did you decide that it wasn’t safe to shine your light anymore? Whose voice was it that you listened to above your own? Whose light did you stand in the shadow of?
What shadow are you still standing (hiding) in?
I know you know.
If you are really honest with yourself….
You weren’t meant to play small, my dear. That is not what YOU were made for.
You have always been HUGE.
Maybe too big, too bright, too magnificent…
But only for those who can’t stand to see their own light.
You didn’t know then… You thought it was safe to listen to them. You were taught to trust their voice instead of your own.
You. Know. NOW.
You know in the ways you aren’t fulfilled. You know in the ways that make you feel alive again. You know in your bones that you were always meant for something more than settling for mediocrity.
Don’t listen to “them” anymore.
It has always been about you. It has always been IN you. You are a light. - A beautiful, messy, imperfectly perfect star. You were always meant to shine bright.
When you dare to shine your light, you will call everyone around you to step up into their own. When you reveal the light, you also reveal the shadows…& some won’t like it.
You are the light.
Shine on. Shine bright.
And if you shine so bright it hurts their eyes…
Tell them to buckle up & put on some sunglasses.
Love always, J xo
