One of my favorite quotes is from the great Marianne Williamson. I remember when I first heard a snippet of this quote. I was watching "Coach Carter"! (Y'all remember that movie, right? Haha!).
One of the characters in the movie delivers a part of this quote. Anyway, after that scene, Marianne Williamson was on my radar. The words within this quote are powerful and inspiring!!
["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.”]
Yes!! So powerful! Let those words resonate with you. Let us all try to remember to LET OUR LIGHT SHINE. You were born to shine. So shine!! :)
Today and always, be blessed.
The photo below was taken last night! I went to see a friend of mine play a solo set! Saw this candle light and thought of the quote above! [P.S. -- check out my little (JJ) lens flare! hehe :)]
