You Can Always Shine

There was a sun planted in a wallpaper of a sky. The sun was an infinite being and very much alive. It shined an enchanting glow to all, but only the few who had tapped into their own light could truly see.

One day, a cloud covered the sun’s soul. The sky went dark and murky, and all of the sudden the world seemed so lost. The sun smiled through its rays, as the cloud shifted a little.

With one ray peeking through the cloud’s dome, the sun felt so peacefully still. Its light was being shadowed, but its heart was beaming. The sun had remembered it was a star.

The cloud tried to expand, it tried to drift to cover the sparkling rays; but, it was still losing this invisible battle. The cloud couldn’t get to the sun – no matter how hard it tried, the sun just smiled and sat deeper in joy’s depths.

The sun gently, preciously and lovingly whispered to the cloud, “I forgive you.”

The cloud lost all control, it was flustered by the sun’s genuine love. And in an instant, the cloud disappeared. The world was aglow once again, as the sun basked in freedom. All had changed with just a few simple words.

Through true love, you can always shine.

Be fearless and free -Ace

  2. You are a brilliant shining star dear Ace, bringing so much light into this world. Simple words – I forgive you, I love you – such profound power in them to melt the thickest dark clouds into a warm glow.

    Its light was being shadowed, but its heart was beaming – this line has so much assurance, confidence, faith, trust conveyed for those who might go in doubt. I love how you call it an invisible battle – once over and overcome with love all it leaves is brilliant spaciousness. Keep shining my friend 💛✨

  11. I loved the concept behind this story, as well as the delivery. In addition to the story of the persistently hopeful sun who continued to glow despite being faced with adversary, I also saw a message about forgiveness coming through. It is extremely important to remember to forgive, even those who have wronged us like the cloud did the sun. Thank you for sharing such beautiful messages in a unique and creative way 😊
