a couple of tips to practice – literally light a candle.

if you order something, and it’s not what you wanted, practice saying something.  if you disagree with a friend, child or spouse, practice sharing your thoughts. the last one isn’t easy but if you can practice sharing and shining it doesn’t seem so daunting.

Light that candle!

I’m going to let it shine
This little light of mine
I’m going to let it shine
This little light of mine
I’m going to let it shine
Let it shine, let it shine
