Shine on

shine on
And we all shine on
Like the moon and the stars and the sun

Well, we all shine on

Everyone, c'mon

Instant Karma's gonna get you

Gonna knock you off your feet

Better recognise your brothers

Everyone you meet

Why in the world are we here?
Surely not to live in pain and fear

Why on Earth are you there

When you're everywhere

Gonna get your share

Well, we all shine on

Like the moon and the stars and the sun

Yeah, we all shine on

C'mon and on and on, on, on

(thanks to the wonderful John Lennon for these lyrics)
Thinking about my words for the year, I've been percolating on this. Shine. Shine on. Shine that light. Shine. My word for 2010. Lots of meaning there. Allowing myself to shine, to polish the gifts I have, to shine a light on others, to go towards the light, to shine when it's dark around me, even if the shine is a little one, I'm committing to shine in 2010. And if my shine is big, you best be getting out your sunglasses.

Your post reminds me of a childhood song in Sunday School - This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine... Thanks for leading me to and reminding me of "the light."

Everything about this post rocks. And makes me want to listen to Shine a Light" which is very possibly one of the best songs ever recorded by The Rolling Stones.
