Let Your Colors Shine

card from True Colors: Cards by Kristin Cronin-Barrow and Jady Day Studio

It’s almost a new month. Always hard to believe and yet always true. As you start a new month, I want to encourage you to let your colors shine.

Brené Brown, in her #1 Bestselling book Daring Greatly, says many profound things. My book is filled with probably as much highlighted text as unhighlighted. Steph introduced me to the book and she has mentioned it here before.

I think the greatest thing I took away from the book is a courage to be me. The real me. I don’t have to be what anyone else wants me to be or expects me to be. I am unique. I am loved. I have something valuable to offer.

I’ve spent much of my life trying to look/act/feel like someone else. What I didn’t realize is that by doing that, I missed (and everyone else missed) the opportunity to know me. Whether it is in scrapping, work, family, church, photography, or anything else, there is only one me. I better let it shine.

What about you? Do you feel you can truly be yourself? In scrapping and crafting? In photography? In motherhood? In life?
