Let it Glow

When I saw the prompt ‘shine’ for The Daily Post, two thoughts automatically came to my mind, one in the manner of a song and the other a quote.

‘This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine,

this little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine,

this little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine,

let it shine, let it shine, let it shine.

When you put off someone’s candle, yours ain’t going to shine brighter.

This tells me that we should be the shining examples that we would love to see in others. We should be the bright inspiration that uplifts others. We should be builders and not destroyers. Our actions and words build, encourages and uplifts.

For things that shine, I find dark nights not only mystical but equally magical as artificial light pierces pitch black nights, lending mystery to them and making the night less terrifying.

Don’t steal the shine….

Do not bother stealing my shine or anyone’s own, ‘cos it most definitely won’t fit you.

Begin to think more about your possibilities and dwell less on the impossibilities.

Surround yourself with positive minds and props that bolster your efforts.

Let go of all negative energy that drains your radiance.

Learn to dream, because those who don’t dream,

aspire for nothing.

Keep your eyes on your bigger picture,

and as you create the lines and curves,

even though it might seem to be in bits and pieces,

soon enough, your picture will emerge and,

your lines will fall in the right places.


Your success should never be measured with a scale that belongs to another,

Because their scale just might be broken.

Besides, we are all running different and individual races.
