I started this post over a week ago, having taken a beautiful picture of the sun coming through the trees while I sat watching Hannah’s soccer practice. I didn’t have a good feel for what I wanted to say, other than that it would be about our inner light.
Since then I have seen a post by my friend Liv Lane on the subject, a picture and caption on Facebook…
and a Biblical reference about not hiding our light under a bushel. It is like the universe is encouraging me to broach the issue, but leaving me hanging as to specifically HOW.
For starters, for me anyway, letting my light shine is not an easy thing to do sometimes.
I don’t know if I feel unworthy because I’ve made mistakes, or because it feels like I’m tooting my own horns. But I have a tendency to hide my light at times. I’m sure most of us do.
But the thing is, we all have light. Maybe some more than others, but we ALL have it, and if we all share it with others, how bright the world would be!
How sad to have so many people afraid to show their light out of a feeling of unworthiness. There is not a perfect person on the planet. We all have pockets of brilliance along with things we aren’t so proud of. The not so wonderful things we’ve said or done do not disqualify us from being a beacon to others in the areas where we are strong.
So. I’m going to try very hard to let my light shine. Join me?
