You are golden. Explanations and apologies are not prerequisites by those who love and accept you in whole without condition.
Holiday or not, you still have the right to be yourself.
Lovingly return judgments, off-handed comments about your lifestyle, back-handed compliments, inappropriate inquisitions and second-guessing to the original sender.
These messages are not your truth. They don't define your life.
They are not yours to marinate your beautiful heart within.
Choose what is worthy of your light and infuse your everything with all you desire and deserve.
We own our light.
There will be those who plug into our vibrancy; they desire our light. There will be those who seek to extinguish our light; they fear it. There will be those blinded by our light; they don't understand it. There will be those who mock our glow; they don't respect it.
Own your light and shine on without apology. Your vibrancy is beautiful.
Every love we experience has the potential to nourish our growth and expand our hearts. Even the love that does not fit can teach us something worthy. A clenched, insulated heart may temporarily avoid hurt, disappointment or loss but it will also block light, expansion, and joy.
My heart's desire
This is the blaze I will run towards
