Don’t Make Yourself Small

“Decide that you care more about creating your magic and pushing it out into the world than you do about how it will be received.”

Rachel Hollis, Girl, Wash Your Face: Stop Believing the Lies About Who You Are so You Can Become Who You Were Meant to Be

I went with a group of women to an amazing 1 night showing of Made For More.  Rachel Hollis’ husband, Dave, said a quote that I absolutely loved…. and now I forget it.  It was something like this. Don’t make yourself small just so those around you feel more comfortable with the size of YOUR dreams.  Don’t shrink so that people feel better about you not following your passion. Sometimes it may even be the people you love the most that don’t understand.  Do not shrink yourself just so you fit inside society’s standards.

What if we all gave more of ourselves without fear of what other people might think.  Rachel Hollis says it’s none of our business what other people think!

I’ve always been on the timid side when it came to doing what other people wouldn’t understand, admitting my crazy goals and dreams out loud, and drawing attention to myself.  But when you let go of the fear that other people might judge you, it’s freeing. And when you quit making yourself small just to fit in and not draw attention to yourself, you open yourself up to bigger adventures, more passion, and an increased ability to hear the path God has waiting for you.

Quit shrinking…and allow yourself to shine light to others.
