Oh, There's My Light!
Last weekend, I had the honor of spending a lot of time with my nieces. It's amazing how they communicate in their own special way - with an expansive imagination, curiosity and vast courage to simply be.
My niece, Kassidi taught me a valuable lesson that I knew would be my next blog post. We discussed taking her to a museum of her choice and settled on the Science Museum. Cool!
We walked through several exhibits, with a lot of "ahhh's" and "oooooh's" along the way. Everything from an interesting planetarium, to fossils and fun demos. Nevertheless, it was not until my niece saw a spotlight that she yelled with excitement and set out into a full twirl under the light that permeated from the ceiling.
I turned around from checking out an exhibit board and heard my niece yell, "Oh, there's my light!"
And, there she was, in the middle of the science museum, tickled pink with joy to dance in the light that she owned. I acted quickly to capture my little dancer's twirl and knew that she was on to something.
When was the last time you located your light and unapologetically owned your space to dance? In full joy? Without abandon? Without judgement?
Regardless of what others thought or any looks that came her way, she lovingly gave herself permission to experience joy and taught me to never be afraid of my own light (your light) - to celebrate it and creatively dance like the star we all are.
Today, as we kick off the month of August, I invite you to create a list of spaces that you are not fully dancing in your light and list the reasons why. Next, challenge yourself to weekly take just ONE thing from your list to conquer. What changed for you? Anything? How did it make you feel? Did you notice any other areas of your life that were empowered by taking just one action step to fully live in your light?
Drop me a line and let me know what you're up to - I'd love to hear your progress.
I'll be dancing with you...all month...all year long, in to fully owning the light that we are boldly given to embrace.
