Resolve to Shine

Resolve to Shine |

I haven’t even begun editing my Electric Picnic pics, but thought a GIF of the Friday night fireworks would be a fitting illustration to this quote, taken from this beautiful piece Caitlin Moran wrote to her daughter. Kids or no kids, it may bring a tear to your eye. Full quote below.

Just resolve to shine, constantly and steadily, like a warm lamp in the corner, and people will want to move towards you in order to feel happy, and to read things more clearly. You will be bright and constant in a world of dark and flux, and this will save you the anxiety of other, ultimately less satisfying things like ‘being cool’, ‘being more successful than everyone else’ and ‘being very thin’.

Hope you have a great week!
