Shine & Soar


“When you start doing really incredible things, different things, changing your life from must-haves and must-do’s to meaningful, there is going to be adversity and friction. The louder you become with becoming more of who you are, the louder the critics become. How dare you shine in the joy of doing what matters and make them feel bad for clinging onto what does not? How could you live a simple and fulfilling life, which reminds them they live an extravagant and empty life? …Because you were once there too, sweet friend. Crawling in the darkness, holding on tight to any temporary high that kept you from remembering how broken you were. But something happened. You surrendered. And He put together all of your pieces. You saw the light on the other side and chose to walk away from that world. “As we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.” Keep shining, sister. Those who long for the light will find it through you and those who long for the darkness will nurse their fears and arrogance within it. Do not be discouraged. Do not retreat. Move forward. Move up. Shine on, little sister.” – #katieonotes
