We are all meant to shine, as children do…And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As I stated above, until I realized my fear was based on how much I cared, I was held hostage. If you aren’t in tune with this, there’s no way to embrace or overcome it. Just because you’re putting yourself out there in some capacity, that doesn’t mean you’re not letting fear get the best of you the other 95% of the time. Until you let go and focus on the present, joy is just a myth. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you.

I know, it’s hard to say you’re scared or vulnerable. I bet if you asked every person you’re close to whether or not they experience fear, you would get 80% to say yes. It means letting go—letting go of failed relationships, failed projects, and anything in your past that felt like a failure—and putting yourself out there in the now. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us…Your playing small does not serve the world. Your ability to be okay with vulnerability will bring exponential results when it comes to experiencing joy. Tell someone you’re sorry, even if you think it should be them coming to you. There is infinite power in embracing your vulnerability. I leave you with one of my favorite quotes from Marianne Williamson. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.

Trust me, if I knew how to hack the Tinder algorithms so I showed up in Zac Efron's swipes daily, I'd do it.
But swiping isn't actually proven to do that much for your love life.
“He who deliberates fully before taking a step will spend his entire life on one leg.” ~Chinese Proverb I’m not going to put myself out there.
I hear a lot of people talk about how important it is to just hit “send”—to move past the fear of judgment.
