Just picturing how far away these stars are and yet we can still see their light shining bright mesmerizes me. Think if each one of us let our light shine; how bright would we make the Earth?
We weren't made to conform to a daily grind. We were made to bring our unique spark to the world, our jobs, our communities and make an impact. We weren't made to judge and belittle. We were made to create, support, and build up. We weren't made to live our life just feeling "meh". We were built for joy!
Last night as I stared up at the sky I felt both inspired and at peace. When I went to sleep last night, every dream had the stars. And when I woke to do my mindful breathing this morning, the image I held in my mind was the star filled night sky. For me, it is a promise. It is inspiration. It is an invitation to dream big and open my heart.
I'm grateful to dream. I'm grateful to look up and find love and inspiration in the night sky. I'm grateful to feel supported by its symbolism. I'm grateful to balance reality with dream. I'm grateful to know that I can hold a common job and participate in the societal structure and still let my own light shine. I'm grateful for those who recognize the balance and where their own spark shines brightest. I'm grateful for every unique talent that builds a loving and beautiful world. I'm grateful to gaze at the stars and know that my feet will still find their way.
What inspires you? How do you let your own light shine? What brings you joy?
May we all dream. May we all be inspired by the light we see both in each other and ourselves. Have a beautiful day!
