A - Z Letter Challenge Letter S = Sparkle

Everyone has the ability, the right, sometimes the need to sparkle. Don't hide your light or let someone dim your brightness...sparkle!

Here are few thoughts and quotes on sparkling and what a sparkle can help us achieve...

As she passed among the hungry and the dejected,
     delivering the rations of water,
      she chanted in a low whisper,
"the spark of the mind - the sparkle of the soul"...
"the spark of the mind - the sparkle of the soul"...
Jonathan Lockwood Hule~

We need less posturing and more genuine charisma.
    Charisma was originally a religious term,
      meaning "of the spirit" or "inspired."
It's about letting God's light shine through us.
    It's about a sparkle in people money can't buy.
       It's an invisible energy with visible effects.
To let go, to just love, is not to fade into the wallpaper.
  Quite the contrary, it's when we truly become bright.
      We're letting our own light shine.
Marianne Williamson~

Don't forget to matter how young or how old keep your sparkle polished.  Keep shining...keep spreading your light. Or if you prefer advice in a lyric...Katy Perry is spot on~

" 'Cause baby you're a firework
    Come on show 'em what you're worth
    Make 'em go, oh, oh, oh,
    As you shoot across the sky"

Go on now....SPARKLE

Sush, I was just listening to Katy Perry's song this week and for the first time I really felt the meaning in those lyrics. You make me feel like a sparkly person with the kindness you continually share. You have a lot of sparkly soul-bling and it shines!

I'm 15 hours late, dear Sush. Forgive me. I've been away from the computer all day doing my best to sparkle in the "real world." I wholeheartedly believe in random acts of sparkle. I recognize the sparkle in you and am attracted to it.

Well we all shine on
Like the moon and the stars and the sun
Well we all shine on
Every one, come on

You're right. We must sparkle to cheer others along their way. Who hasn't caught the smile of a stranger and been cheered? Thank you for your visit to my blog.
