Day 4’s writing assignment is to take a photo and use it as your writing prompt. I chose to write a quote and then share some background on the photograph I’d taken.
This photograph presented itself to me early one morning last fall while visiting my children. I loved how the light seemed to search out and find the smaller of the trees. And once it was given it’s ‘spotlight’, it totally lit up the forest. I could almost hear it saying “I may not be as big as you other trees…yet, but I sure do have something to offer. Now give me room ’cause I’ve got some growing and shining to do!”
I think we all have felt ‘small’ at some time in our lives, I know I have. Low self esteem and no self confidence has a way of doing that to a person. It took me a long time to really wrap my head around the fact that I was giving control of how I felt and was feeling to others. Once I figured it out, once I started taking back the control, there was no turning back. And you know what…I Really like shining my light!!!! ☀️☀️
