Step out into the cool night air. Look at the stars. See how they shine.
Know that it is ok for you to shine, too.
Who told you you had to hold back? Who told you your gifts, your talents, your beauty - your natural, beautiful, loving, delightful self - was wrong? Who told you not to be all you could be? Maybe, as some suggest, we've gotten too comfortable focusing on our flaws, our errors,
our dark side. Perhaps it's not our dark side we fear.
Perhaps we're really afraid of our gifts, our brilliance, our light.
Now is a time of light. It's time for us to shine. We've worked hard on ourselves, dealt with our issues, gone back to the past. We've learned our lessons well. The reason to hold back and hide away are no longer there. Enjoy the fruits of your labor.
Be all you can be, and enjoy being that. Don't hold back. Use your gifts with joy. Use your talents. Let your light shine for all the world to see.
Finally, you are free to be all that you are and can be.
