Hiding in Shadows

We are not so much afraid we’re not enough as we are that we’re too much. If we use all we’ve got, will we be too much? Will the world be able to take it? Will we be loved?
That fear is so great, we unconsciously let it drive us.
We look outward for acceptance so long and hard, we lose sight of the glow within us that’s meant to light the way.

But it’s there. We have no power to put it out. It illuminates us even when we stand in the shadows and the universe sees exactly who we are, even if we don’t.

That’s when love becomes more than a word. When someone loves us enough to point us toward our own light, we begin to see it too. When they help us see what our gifts are, they give us the greatest gift of all. Proof that we can be who we were born to be and we will still be loved.

When we we stand in our own light, we not only make ourselves easier to see, we light up the world.
The brighter we shine, the more we light the way for others.

– Shirley Hanna-King
