A Note From Kim

My parents raised me in an atmosphere that fostered self-respect, individuality, confidence, strong values and solid faith.  They always believed I was special and I felt that.  As I grew up, I truly believed no matter what goal I set, I could achieve it.  When I faced challenges, no matter how daunting, I always believed I would overcome them and I did.


No matter the task, I always gave 110% effort.  I was never the smartest in my class or the most naturally gifted athlete.  But, I have achieved every career and athletic goal I have set for myself.  I have faced many challenges along the way.  When I get knocked down, I get back up and keep moving forward.  If I don’t succeed the first time, I learn from the situation and try again. I truly believe anything is possible through God and hard work.


The journey to any finish line whether career, scholastic, relationships or sports is faced with its fair share of challenges.  Embrace the challenges, take in every moment of the journey.  Stop and breathe in the fresh air, look at the beautiful trees, smile at a passerby, thank someone, help others in need, inspire a person,  listen to a friend, hug your children, tell your family you love them.  My friends, this is the journey of life. 

 

I truly believe God gave each of us the ability to harness our power from within and achieve anything we want. The power of the mind is limitless. I believe we are all destined to be great. Discover your gifts, set goals and work to achieve them.


My husband, Mike, and I try to instill this belief in our two children. For the last five years, every morning on our way to school, the kids and I join hands and say a prayer together to start our morning, then thank God for our blessings and pray for any special intentions.

We thank God for our Light and ask him to help us to let it shine to others.  Over the years, I have spent time talking to them about their special gifts:  that they are special and unique, they are different from other kids and that is by design and to embrace their differences and to let their light shine.

The last thing I always say as they close the door good-bye for the day is...

“I love You and Let Your Light Shine today!”

No matter what they decide to be when they grow up (which I have explained to them may change several times over the upcoming years), my husband and I want them to believe they can do whatever it is they decide upon and do it to the best of their ability.


My hope is that they discover their light, embrace it and let it shine brightly to others affecting society in a positive way.

 

My hope for you is that YOU realize your gifts and are inspired to share those with others. 

We all are blessed with a unique LIGHT.  It is in discovering that light and in sharing it with others that the real magic begins.

Shine On!


Love and Light,

Kim Andriole
