Shine your Light, as only you can. You are not here by some random act… none of us are. We are all apart of the Divine plan with our own unique gifts and talents to share. Only you can be you… and you owe it to yourself and the world to be the best you possible.
This advice is just as much for me as it is for anyone else. While I have identified myself as a writer for very many years, I have allowed my fears to get in the way of communicating my personal perspective in an open forum. As a former public relations consultant, I am much more comfortable being behind the scenes and helping others bask in the spotlight. But I now realize the time has come for me to put aside my insecurities about how my words might be received and just go for it.
Ultimately, for me (like most of us) the fear is about being harshly judged. Knowing that my way of seeing the world is unconventional and by presenting my ideas in the public arena, I am leaving myself wide open and vulnerable to criticism and potential backlash. But alternatively, by stepping outside of my comfort zone and choosing to share my insights, I may also write something that actually resonates with a few people and even generates positive affects in their lives. And that, for me, is worth everything!
My hope in writing this is that I may inspire you to do the same… in your own way!
