The Shine Project

I first came across Ashley's blog when she left a sweet comment on one of my posts. I also found out through that comment that we're both teachers...I tell ya, all teachers are truly kindred souls; there really is some commonality bond there.

I always loved reading Ashley's posts, the girl has a funny sense of humor and she is too super cute...but recently one of her posts really inspired me. 

Ashley posted that she had picked one word as the "theme" for her year. The word that she chose was SHINE. From this word Ashley started something called The Shine Project. The Shine Project is all about reaching for your goals {seriously, no excuses this time} and bringing light to those around you. You can read about The Shine Project in Ashley's own words here, but doesn't the whole thing just sound so beautiful?

Ashley has also begun creating her own necklaces as a reminder to SHINE daily. Each necklace is uniquely hand-made. I'm planning on putting my order in for my own necklace soon.

Be sure to check out Ashley's weekly Shine challenges, as well. I can't wait to participate in this weeks challenge, hopefully I will get the chance to blog about it.

If you have the time, head on over to Ashley's blog...I can promise you that it will lift your spirits. x
