Whatever you do, shine.
Perhaps better spoken is: shine unto others what you wish they shine unto you.
Right now, you are projecting your feelings, thoughts, and energy outwardly. Internally, you are either in a state of ‘flow’ or ‘turmoil’, and the choice remains yours, as always. By choosing conversations, relationships, activities, and a lifestyle that are consistent with who you are and what makes you feel great, you are allowing yourself to be in a state of flow. By taking time each day to reflect upon and observe your own behaviors, feelings, or thoughts, you are also allowing yourself to exist in a flow state.
And when you’re in a state of flow, you’ll naturally feel energized, ‘lit up’, or illuminated. You’ll notice you’re walking around with a default smile, you may have a bit more bounce to your step, and everyone around you seems happier after they hang with you than before you arrived.
So, the obvious question is: how do you exist in a state of flow at all times, or at least nearly all the time?
Remember, when you shine light outwardly, it means you’re illuminated on the inside. It means you’ve taken care of yourself, your own emotional state, and you’ve made yourself the priority. Only then are you able to project your best onto the world and share your light.
