This week's post is inspired by my therapist who reminded me of the famous quote below by Marianne Williamson. There's been a lot of positive change in my life over the last few months since posting Resolutions Shmesolutions, which supports my firm belief that when you consciously acknowledge your pain and fears, a magical shift occurs. (Name it to tame it!) But WHEN ALL THE GOOD I've been craving for so long STARTED TO ACTUALLY HAPPEN, a whole other host of issues came with that.
“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.”
