I forgot to tell you something. If you wonder if you have it at all just remember that you always have. It’s hard to remember how brilliant we are, hard to claim our shining stars when we are surrounded in gray. Especially the gray of public education. Cinder block walls. Terrible food. Basal readers. No recess or time to explore. It’s a travesty really to be locked up from the time you are five. So if you need to reeducate yourself, go ahead. Start with Classic Winnie the Pooh by A. A. Milne. Then move to Judy Blume. Then study to be a lawyer online. Get your pilot’s license. You can do whatever you want to. You were never stupid. You were just deprived and traumatized. Open your heart ❤️ just a stretch. Just a tiny, little stretch. You will see your shiny light starting to form. If you’ve always felt little then you are one of our biggest ones. Seriously, you are. “Go now to your dwelling place, and may your days be good and long upon the earth.” From a wedding blessing.
