This quote is probably one you have heard. Probably one you have reflected upon at some point. But have you ever heard the rest? The part that says “And when you bring what is within out into the world, miracles happen”?

That is not the part of the quote most people know. But that is the part that you should know. What is within us is what matters. But for miracles to happen you have to let what is within you shine. You have to share yourself with the world.

If you don’t, how can anyone ever know how brightly you shine?


Dotti Gramke

Dotti was born and raised in Southwest Wyoming and moved to Nebraska after falling head-over-heels for a Nebraska boy in college; and married him. She is the mother of two beautiful girls. In the past, Dotti has worked as a reporter for two different Nebraska newspapers, as well as a freelance writer. She is an active photographer, and her art was shown in a gallery in Wyoming, in a display of Nebraska Photographers at the Hastings Museum and as the feature artist at the Minden Opera House. If you don't see her with her camera or her family, you might find Dotti at home--chasing chickens and cows.
