Heyyy new friends! I'm Ashley, and I blog over at The Shine Project.
I created The Shine Project at the beginning of this year to motivate others to go after their goals, and spread their light to others. I believe that service is the best way to feel happiness and love in our lives, and I created SHINE necklaces to help remind us of our daily purpose. Money from each necklace sold goes into a scholarship fund to help inner city high school students go to college. You can read more about that HERE and HERE. The Shine Project is in the process of becoming a Non-Profit organization so that thousands more students can have a positive future.

I believe that no act of kindness is too small or insignificant to perform.
I believe that it's when we feel the most inadequate
that we're able to grow and rise above ourselves.
I believe in miracles. Not because they happen out of nowhere,
but because hard work brings blessings that would otherwise not come.
I believe in reaching goals. Pushing yourself when you feel like you've
reached your outermost limits is how you obtain what you want.
I believe in learning who you are through serving other people.
You can see your potential and abilities when you're using them
to lift and teach others.
I believe that nothing is impossible.

I would give a shine necklace to a fellow teacher I work with :) We often get discouraged because of how crazy things can get at school, but I think this would also help us remember how important our job is too.

I would definitely give a shine necklace to my best friend. She has been having a lot of health issues at such a young age. Because of her health issues, she hasn't been able to work or go to school. She often gets very discouraged and gives up. I want to give her a shine necklace to remind her that she is an amazing person and she must NEVER give up and always SHINE :)

I would give shine necklaces to some of our patients at our office. It's amazing what some of these people are dealing with on a daily basis but yet they are so giving and encouraging for others. They truly "shine". christympearson@hotmail.com
