Light is radiant, it can light up any dark area. Have you ever noticed someone shining ever so brightly and thought to yourself: “Wow, there is something that just emanates peace.” A glow. A light. A confidence— not one filled with boastfulness, but one that exudes a quiet knowing. 

Sometimes that light can be taunting to a person who feels as if they are being overshadowed and, sometimes, it can cause you to knit pick at yourself (not to mention them). We all have a light that is waiting to be brightened, and exposed to the world. But with exposure, comes ridicule, love and hate— an overall wide mixture of reactions and emotion. 

When we walk through the process, we build character; and things no longer bother us the way they used to. Its not that things have drastically changed; its more the fact that we’ve learned to change how we handle things — a change within ourselves, our soul. 

For a few years, I shared the stories of other women in a series called Beauty Chronicles 101. I interviewed women from all walks of life, culture and region. These women were vulnerable, they were real and open; which, in turn, made me realize that I shared every one else’s story, but my own. 

I think its all about timing. 

Being ready and willing.

And getting to a place where you know that “by sharing [your] story, you heal and help others along the way.” That has always been my motto. I felt it was time. My process was different than many people, and you’re process yet alone, journey, will be your own too. 

So here it goes…
