What does it mean to shine?
To be comfortable in your own skin.
To love who you are and the place you hold in this world.
To influence, lead and support others, so they too can shine.
To bestow love, joy and kindness to yourself, your community, and the world around you.
To know you were placed in this world with a purpose, a mission, a legacy, only you get to carry forth.
To stand in the drift of life, stand for others who may not be able to stand or who have lost their light, and to shine on them to bring their light forward.
To embrace each day as if it were your last, for life is precious, a gift.
To sing loud and proudly, dance in the rain, and smile at all babies, human, fur, and all creatures of the earth.
To be grateful having been place this on this beautiful, blue marble, earth, our home.
What does it mean to shine for you?
