Shining Means....

We are told to let our light shine, and if it does, we won't need to tell anybody it does. Lighthouses don't fire cannons to call attention to their shining - they just shine. Dwight Moody

when you show up and you shine every single time, what happens is, shining  becomes a part of you, shining becomes your norm

and what is shining?

shining is not hiding behind excuses

shining is taking responsibility for your actions

shining is doing your best in the moment – sometimes the moment may not be perfect, but it ought not to stop you from doing your best in that moment

shining means being honest

shining means knowing that you will make mistakes

shining means feeling all your feelings

shining means having self belief

shining means being disciplined

shining means doing the work

shining means having the faith when you have done all the work

shining means being courageous

shining means being flexible

shining means setting & respecting boundaries    

shining means using what you have to make something useful

Keep shining

Peace
