Hi SHE Fam! It’s Friday! As always, it’s my hope that your week has been just as awesome as you are. As you know, Her Inspirational Corner is meant to uplift and encourage you. When writing, I thrive on the fact that many of our readers feel empowered to conquer the day. I consider each reader and every woman a bright light that’s meant to shine.

Your light is your identity. It’s your accomplishments and the energy comes from your beliefs, blessings and experiences. Often times our light shines so bright that it shocks us, and way too many times, we dim our lights to accommodate others. Let me explain….our light; success and full-blown joy has the power to blind some of the people in our lives. To avoid them reacting to our light we dim it with hopes that they will never feel like you’re attempting to out shine them. And whereas, you should never flash your light in anyone’s eyes, you also shouldn’t apologize for all that God has done for you.

Remember that when people see you, they should know GOD DID IT! Use your light to help others shine. Think about it….if a light bulb goes out then in most cases you will turn another light on so that you can see. This should be the same for the people in your life that desires to shine brighter. Encourage them often and uplift them with prayers but more than anything remind them of God’s goodness.

We know that God has a plan for each of us and no journey is the same. Each of us will endure dark times but we should never forget that there is light at the end of the tunnel.

From my inspirational corner to yours, never dim your light and remember to shine bright.
