Go ahead. Turn up the volume. Listen. Listen hard.
Do you hear that pitter patter?
That is the sound of your heart.
The heart that embraces you for you.
The heart that gives you life.
The heart that swells with love yet aches.
Channel your pain.
Wrap your arms around your tenderness.
Caress the tears streaming from your face.
Now. Go look in the mirror.
Look her in the eyes.
You are beautiful inside and out.
You have been through much worse.
Tell your fears to stand down.
Tell your anxiety to surrender.
Your heart is telling you.
Do what your heart desires.
Feel the goodness your heart bleeds.
Do not let your heart down.
Why Shine? Not for reasons that keep you up at night, because those reasons are exhausting and energy suckers.
Do not shine because it’s what everyone wants you to do. Do not shine because you want to keep up a certain appearance. Do not shine because others have made you feel less than who you are. Do not shine because you fear the unknown.
Decide to Shine because you want more — your life, your dreams, your endless possibilities. Decide to Shine because your heart needs to pump with love, happiness, and joy. Those superpowers are exorbitantly fulfilling and should be a part of everyday life.
Decide to Shine to uncover your core desires.
On the other side of deciding to shine is your soul on fire. It is ecstasy, radiance, abundant insight. And the center of your strength is holding out its hand with teacup of endorphins. Cheers.
Your heart wants you to win
Your heart wants you to live the life you desire
Your heart wants you to choose what matters
Your hearts chooses you.
Lean in. Listen with intent.
That is your heart speaking and she says,
You got this. Get up. Shine with your heart.
The world needs you. I need you.
Decide to Shine.
