As we start to reflect on what this past year has brought to our lives and what we hope will come of the next year, I wanted to share a quote with you.
“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, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not 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, it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
I hope that this encouraged you. As I read this quote this week, I was re-inspired to go after my dreams and not let them die. As Marianne Williamson said, it just takes one person to show others that they can also walk in their own greatness. Have a great week!
