Whenever I hear another person’s quote of the day, my mind flits to the quote “stars shine brightest when they’re surrounded by darkness”. This quote resonates with me and rings true to my ears as I follow my solo path and wander towards something better for myself. “Nobody said the path to success wasn’t lonely.” So the next time you think you’re lonely when you’re working hard to get what you want and you look around and notice there isn’t anyone around, don’t be surprised. You might think you’re surrounded by darkness, and you may even think you are part of the darkness. Don’t be surprised, instead be proud of yourself and continue to shine in the darkness that surrounds you. Soon enough you’ll be confident enough to shimmer in the darkness.
