Nurture Yourself- with Your Light

Nurture Yourself - I am Light.webI Am Light                             2015©artwork by Isadora

We all have a light.

Let’s let it out to shine.

As the lyrics say – ‘We are not the mistakes our families have made.

We carry negative thoughts at times based on how our family dynamics were.
We had no control over that but we have control over how we are today.

Right now, make a pledge to discard those feelings
and let the best light in you shine.

We don’t have to compare ourselves based on how someone else looks.
Let’s be proud of our skin color,

how our hair manages in those day to day situations.

It’s kinky, it’s straight – no matter

we have a bright light to shine.

We are dark, we are light – no matter

we have a bright light to shine.

As the song says
We are not our age
Or the color of our eyes
Nor the color on the outside

We are the light that shines
Be the Light
Let it out
I Am Light

Lyrics by Indie Arie

I Am Light 

I am light, I am light
I am light, I am light
I am light,

I am not the things my family did
I am not the voices in my head
I am not the pieces of the brokenness inside

I am light, I am light
I am light, I am light
I am light

I’m not the mistakes that I have made
or any of the things that caused me pain
I am not the pieces of the dream I left behind

I am light, I am light
I am light, I am light
I am light

I am not the color of my eyes
I am not the skin on the outside
I am not my age, I am not my race,
my soul inside is all light

All light, all light
I am light
I am light, I am light
I am light

I am divinity defined
I am the God on the inside
I am a star, a piece of it all
I am light

Intriguing, sensitive, mysterious, loving, artistic and crackling with excitement for life is a pretty good description of who I am. I just retired from the world of art where I sold my Artfully Designed Handmade Jewelry for 28 years; although, art will always be a part of whom I am no matter what venue I choose to express it.

      • Izzy, I am so embarrassed. We really do KNOW that. Sometimes we keep going when we should have gone to bed instead, thus get sluggish and get our wires crossed. Forgive us, please. 😉 ❤

        • 😃😃 No worries … I found it hilarious. I thought the Orples were playing a game on me. I have a great sense of humor and love to laugh so, for me, it uplifted my day. I don’t think there is anyone in the blogging world that hasn’t done that on occasion. Your totally forgiven if it will help ease your embarrassment. Thank you for the kind words about my nurturing. I want to shine a positive light on all who need to be uplifted when their lives seem hopeless and difficult to get through. May your inner light be a beacon for others to see and gain strength from. 😍😍😍
