“If her glitter didn't sparkle she would shatter.”
April, co-founder of Namas’cray, woke up from a dream with this thought fresh in her mind. It reminds us of the importance of allowing ourselves to sparkle and to truly be our multi-faceted selves.
This idea inspired us to search for other quotes about embracing our crazy and we hope to deepen the conversation by sharing seasonal blog posts as we move through 2019.
We don’t seek to romanticize mental illness, but aim to speak honestly about it. Like we always say—we all have a little bit of craziness within us. We each have our lightness and our darkness, our sanity and madness. There are the parts that we show to the world, the parts that we attempt to hide and within all of this, there is beauty. By embracing all facets, we are closer to our true, authentic selves.
What does it mean to you to sparkle? To us, it's the light that shines through and makes us unique in this world. You deserve to shine your bright light, do not lose your sparkle!
Many of us suffer from anxious or depressive tendencies and these are often not parts that feel accepted within the ultra-zenned out, blissed-out yoga culture exaggerated on social media.
By developing and embracing our own uniqueness, we feel less like we need to hide the challenges we face in confronting difficult aspects of our personalities and our states of being.
Below are a few great tips inspired from DiviniCo to help us all cultivate that sparkle. It’s not about changing your entire life in one day but noticing the little things and making small, incremental changes. Mindfulness can train your brain to shift and shine!
By incorporating practices like these, we can work to recognize our power, take pride and ownership over the wholeness of our personalities and honor ourselves. Throughout 2019, we will be sharing some of our favorite crazy quotes and would love to hear your comments and feedback as we move forward! We hope these monthly blogs will create more conversations and space for building community together.
