Shine brighter then a shooting star, no matter where you are.

Monday, February 04, 2013

My blog title is from a song called Shooting Star by Owl City. Not only does it have a great up beat tempo (perfect for working out!), but the lyrics are so happy. Here is just an example of what they say:

"When the sun goes down and the lights burn out
Then it's time for you to shine
Brighter than a shooting star
So shine no matter where you are

Fill the darkest night with a brilliant light
'Cause it's time for you to shine
Brighter than a shooting star
So shine no matter where you are tonight"

I think that those lyrics say so very much about how we need to believe in ourselves. Even when we are at our darkest (and I know we've all been there) we have to just tell us we need to shine. It may be hard to convince ourselves that we are worthy of shinning or that we even have the energy, heart or will to shine. We must remember that even in the hardest times, we have reason to shine. Think about it. Think about what you like about yourself, think about how you stuck to your healthy meals today or maybe even though you were tired today, you still worked out. That my dears is worthy of shinning!! It doesn't have to be a big thing to shine, little things are shine worthy too because even those little things aren't so little when you are doing your best.

Sometimes it's hard remembering that though. Sometimes it's so dark that you feel that even if you did shine, it wouldn't make a bit of difference. But it does! Shinning is one of those things that is contagious, kind of like a cold, but with less runny noses. If you shine, then maybe you'll get someone else who needed to shine, to shine themselves. Once you see them, maybe you'll then start shinning more! When you shine that much, then no matter the darkness that is around you, it won't feel so dark because you are too bright for it. It's time we stop let things and people take it away from us and make us tarnished. So when those days get to dark and things hurt too much, shine anyway. Shine because you deserve it, we all do.
