Be who you are and not who the world wants you to be. Not who you think you should be. Be your beautiful collage of humanity. Be you loud, proud, and brave.
You are a star shining in this world. Do not get tangled up in comparing your light and brightness to that of the other stars. We all shine. We all have light that the world needs. We all add brightness and beauty.
Be who you are. For who you are is worthy, beautiful, significant. Who you are is vital. Who you are is a story we all need written.
You are loved. You are necessary. You are radiant.
Shine in your way. In your style.
Shine bright and true in this life you’ve been given.
Close the door. Write with no one looking over your shoulder. Don’t try to figure out what other people want to hear from you; figure out what you have to say. It’s the one and only thing you have to offer.
