I dare you to shine
We can see you there, twinkling around the edges of the blanket (or the bushel) where you’ve cleverly hidden your light.
Come out. It takes so much work to hide. And your light is so needed now.
I dare you to shine. To risk being seen in all your magnificence.
Shine. I double dare you.
Oh, if only you knew how beautiful and special and beloved you are – you would stand in your own presence and sob. I kid you not.
Come out . . . please!
Stop putting yourself second. Stop giving your power away. Stop investing the priceless gift of your light in distraction, in addiction to everything but the thing that you came here to do.
Choose to shine.
Assume your place, as an integral, beloved, necessary and worthy part of the wholeness that is Love. No matter what you’ve done in the past, choose toward love. No matter if you think you’ll be ridiculed. No matter how CERTAIN you are that it won’t make a lick of difference, shine anyway.
I dare you to shine.
Right now. Yes, in the middle of the office/cafe/living room where you’re sitting.
Shine your beauty, your joy, your talent, your love into the world.
Tip the balance of the world by one more shining soul.
