We are all intended to shine like the bright stars that we are!
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.
- Marianne Williamson
Some of us may have been taught not to draw attention to ourselves, and that it’s not polite to talk about ourselves — rather, it would be better to simply blend in. As an antidote to those awful little voices telling us to be “less than,” I thought to share Marianne Williamson’s inspiring words — I don’t know about you, but they elate my spirit and make me to want to be the very best version of myself that I can be! They make me want to think big and to indulge those outrageous dreams and fantasies I have. You might be feeling that way as well? Get busy then, and let your light shine — and perhaps inspire others to be their best selves as well…have a blast doing it!
