We are raised to feel embarrassed for asking for too much, wanting more, apologizing for thinking too large–especially women. We make our wishes and our dreams smaller so we don’t make others uncomfortable.

I wasn’t raised to dream big. It was immediately pushed away as being frivolous and impossible. I spent my whole life, so far, fitting in just enough so I didn’t stand out. I spent it holding most of my dreams inside so as to not appear foolish. For making others uncomfortable.

How true is that statement: “Don’t let anyone dull your sparkle,” for they have dulled their own in fear of shining. It happens far too often and so many of us are squishing our dreams inside the deepest part of ourselves, unreleased and slowly losing shine.

Never feel ashamed for wanting, for dreaming beyond imagination. Remember, imagination is more important than observation. This is not just an open letter to you, as much as it is for me. Feel proud when you tell others what you desire. Because those who do sparkle will be attracted to yours.
