Give yourself permission to shine so bright that fear will turn to love. No more thoughts running through your mind that make you feel less than. Thoughts like you are not good enough, not smart enough, not attractive enough, not loved enough? Well I am here to tell you otherwise, you are a star with a deep desire to shine and shine brightly.
Are you giving yourself permission to shine or dimming your light?
Within each us we have been given gifts, talents and skills just for our individual uniqueness. Above all else, there will never be another like you. Each of us were created as a one of a kind in other words, never to be duplicated.
Stepping out of your self created shadow.
I get it, your saying to yourself well that’s easy for you to say. It’s not easy work but I promise you, it will be the biggest pay off of your life. I invite you to come and interact with me and others on my FB Page where we can help encourage each other to step out of fear and have courage to let our light shine!
Letting yourself shine gives you the confidence and love of self because you came through that darkness and shined your light upon it. So give yourself the permission that you are a light to the world that must shine. The time is now to step out of your fear.
Confronting fears that are dimming your light.
Firstly, fear is an illusion that keeps you from being your authentic self, it wants to keep Invisible. In other words, It likes you to think your comfortable being in the shadows. Secondly, fear wants to keep you trapped with circular thoughts such as, “I’ll be criticized if I step out,” which leads to loads of self criticism. Quit comparing yourself to others, that’s only going to feed the lack of self worth.
Confront those fears head on every single time they come into mind and say to them they are a liar! Refuse to believe anything that goes against how you want to feel about yourself that isn’t kind and loving or makes you feel icky about yourself. You want to be your biggest cheerleader not the naysayer who wants to make you feel bad.
Are you linking your worth to someone?
Oftentimes we link our self worth to someone else because we don’t love ourself enough and inevitably that someone will let you down. In other words, no one can ever give you what you have been designed to give yourself, love of self. Knowing and loving yourself will be the solid foundation to build your worth upon. You will over time break down the darkness that has held your light in so that you can shine proudly and brightly.
Make yourself a priority and sing your praises, give to yourself what you have been waiting for, permission and acceptance to be your authentic self.
