The light you shine may be a beacon in the darkness

The light you shine may be a beacon in the darkness for others to follow. Don't be afraid to let it shine.

We all have our part to play in this life journey and the journey will be a happier one if we let our light shine. As we allow our light to shine, both our lives and the lives of people around us will be brighter and more full of love and laughter.

We choose who we want to be so let us choose to shine.

I love the following quote by Marianne Williamson:

"As we let our light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence actually liberates others."

Marianne Williamson is also author of the book 

The Gift of Change: Spiritual Guidance for a Radically New Life [Paperback]

Marianne Williamson. 
In this lovely book Marianne talks about change and how we should embrace it. Our lives should be flexible and we are encouraged to find our own path that is truly right for us.

 "Marianne Williamson delves deeply into the rule of change and transition in our lives in this inspirational book, reflecting on the paradoxes that inevitably pervade our experience as she helps us find our way. Williamson examines the paradox of what we gather on the path of life, as our most difficult times sometimes bring about the most wisdom. She then investigates our inherent resistance to change and our recklessness around it. Finally, she focuses at length on the paradox of existence – being firmly rooted yet flexible in our lives.
Providing seven practical principles to support us through the transitions and changes we experience in life, Williamson ensures that whatever change you are facing – whether it's a relationship ending, the loss of a loved one or embarking on a new career path – you can learn to stop resisting the change itself and move into the future gracefully. The Gift of Change also examines the roles of openness and letting go, grieving and forgiveness, and love and fear. Marianne Williamson delivers hope and healing as she brings us to a place where we can truly live in the freedom of love." Amazon.co.uk

So let your light shine, you are brilliant and amazing and others around you will appreciate that light and allow their own light to shine.

Bright blessings to you, Alison
