Come Out & Shine

July 2, 2020

Friend, come out. Step out here. 

Free and assured that you will be loved and accepted.

Maybe not by everyone. But not everyone matters. 

There is no need to hold the truest version of yourself back from the world. 

You are loved and you have so much to offer. 

I once heard a friend say that today was the day she shared her “deepest and darkest” secret with her family and the world. 

Friends, it may have been a secret, but it wasn’t dark. It was you. The real you. The truest and freest version of yourself. 

Never hide who you are. 

You sparkle the brightest when you love and accept yourself. 

You shine the brightest when you have no secrets, no worries, no reason to hide. 

Today and everyday friend, we love you for who you are. All of you. In your entirety. 

xox, Chels
