Keeping your shine and your sparkle…..

Your sparkle x

A thought from yesterday’s post set off another train of thought and it is something I find myself saying a lot lately; ‘Keep your shine’.

Sir Gerry Robinson (who I think is one of the best people since the inventor of sliced bread) was heard to remark in his recent series ‘You can’t take it with you’ on BBC 2; “Decisions cannot be made without taking emotions into account”. Amen to that. It is not about what you do or say, it is about how you make people feel and how they make you feel. Feelings matter.

Is there someone around you or in your outer orbit who makes you feel less than you are? Is there something that you do, maybe day in day out, that nibbles away at who you are? We should keep a check on what or who dulls our shine. Goodness knows life is not perfect and there are some things that we just have to go through, but keep an eye on the things that you can change. No matter how small they are, a tiny adjustment here and there makes a difference. Our emotions are a good monitor for what is going on, so acknowledge those initial feelings that you have about a situation; how has it made you feel?

Retain your shine; it is our unique part that gives each of us individual sparkle.

    Absolutely brilliant Jane!!

    Well done you for picking up on this little piece of awareness and wisdom, and bless you for passing it on.

    My god -I needed that inspiration right now personally!

    Have to stay true to our own life’s purpose and ask constantly if what we are saying, doing and thinking is in alignment with our life’s purpose.

    Know our own truth and stand up for it, work for it, speak for it.

    many thanks ‘special lady’

    keep on keeping on Jane ,these are wonderful teachings

    many blessings
