For years I lived in the dark because it was easier to stay there. Why? Because I could be unseen and unheard.

There is something our subconscious understands about the dark: It's a place to hide and not be challenged. However, pain and sadness lie there too.

One can only heal when you live in the light. It exposes our wounds and vulnerability. Light allows us to take responsibility, stop hiding and move forward to a higher level of existence.

When you live in the light, you allow yourself to move on and gift others with your presence. You have so much unexplored areas of your life. You have so much to contribute.

Let this year be about moving into your into your magnificence. Let it be about going into your dark places and exposing the lessons learned so you can lift up the lives of others.

Live your life large. Live your life full. Make mistakes and let failure be the fuel that propels you forward.

There is light within you waiting to shine and the time is now.

Fear only keeps you stuck and represents the mediocre shell of what you could be. As the flicker of a candle can be extinguished with a sudden gust, so too can our lives. It can be fragile, precious and uncertain. 

Life is here now and now is all we have.

What lessons will you expose to allow your light to shine?

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."
