|from my dailydress journal|
“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.”
This is one of my favorite quotes, and one I need to remind myself on a daily, if not hourly basis!!
It is OK to do our best, to be good at something, to shine!
And I SO want to tell you, my girls, to remember ~ do NOT play small! or play down the things that you do well!!! PLAY BIG!!! xxx
One of the messages that women and girls get is to be demure and small, 'it is more lady-like'. BLAH! those rules no longer apply!!
You are meant to SHINE!! show the world your brilliance, your talents, your beauty, inside and out!!! Not only will you be helping others to be liberated; you, my dear ones, will feel much lighter and at peace. So let's all go out and shine our own unique and beautiful light!!
