“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light not our darkness that most frightens us, we ask ourselves who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous?
Actually who are you not to be?
You are a child of god, your playing small doesn’t serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine as children do, we were born to make manifest the glory of god that is within us. It’s not just in some of us, its in everyone, and as we let our light shine we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we’re liberated from our own fear our presence automatically liberates others.”
Quote by Marriane Williamson.
My sister Nicole read me this quote over the phone a couple of days ago. I feel like it is the moral to all that I try to say.
The moral to MY story.
I am tired of ‘shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure’ around me. I don’t even care if that means I must stand alone to shine as bright as I can.
I don’t want shine for you, for my husband, or even for my children. I want to do it for ME, in my own way.
Whatever that means.
I also want to encourage everyone especially women to stand up for themselves and I hope to inspire and motivate women to be brave and stand up and be counted amongst the great.
Travel your own path, not someone elses, make your own rules, live your way.
We’re capable of so much, if only we put our minds to it.
Come on woman!
