Some of you, my readers, might be wondering why I end my blog posts with the expression, “Shine On!” At first, I thought it would be a clever way to end my blog posts; a way for me to make The SuperBlog unique. After thinking about it for some time, however, there is another reason why I use that expression:
To help people feel like they matter.
Hope is available to us all, but very few know that in the moment, especially dark times in their lives, where they feel depressed, alone and discouraged. I know I have at times, but it was only due to wonderful friends and family that helped me overcome those times, helping me see the positive things that are going on in my life.
Another thing that has helped me is my faith.
I’ll get into it later on this week, on Friday during the annual March for Life, but to discount my faith in helping me overcome dark times would be a sacrilege to those friends that I consider a light to me; they overcame their struggles because of their Catholic faith and to say that they inspire me would be very accurate.
In all honesty, both of those things have made a huge difference in my life and I wouldn’t be the person I am without them.
I want to be a hope dealer, I want to make a difference, I want to share and shed light in others dark times, which is why I like to say “Shine On!” I want to be able to be positive and be a positive influence to others; to make sure anyone knows that they matter.
So, whatever anyone’s going through, just know that you matter, you are important and that, with support, you can always find a way to…
Shine On!!! Both now and always!!
