Hello!  Welcome to my blog -Willing to Shine.  I hope that you will join me on my journey to capture life’s moments – big and small, to educate and share my knowledge and to learn more about myself along the way.

There are moments in life that make it easy to laugh, smile and shine and there are those that make it tough…..  but I believe that life is about perspective.  You’ve most likely heard the old ‘Look for the silver lining in every situation.’  Well…. I think that while it isn’t always easy, it’s possible to do!  This world is full of so much beauty and love and at the exact same time, much heartache and suffering.

I know how easy it can be to fall into damaging, negative, patterns of thinking.  I refuse to let the negativity own me!  I have a light inside of me that shines bright regardless of circumstance or situation.  Don’t get me wrong – I don’t live in a bubble!  Life is hard…  Believe me….. I know!

But I do strive to keep my head up, my heart up and when the tragedies of this world try to pull me down, I remain Willing to Shine.
