and as we let our own light shine...



This famous quote has been around for a long time. In two movies and Nelson Mandela's Inauguration speech in 1994.

It's been one of my favourite quotes for a while but yesterday I had a profound conversation that brought this to my mind once again.

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

We are all meant to shine as children do. Each and every one of us. By letting our own light shine, by believing and never backing down we carry a fragrance that is contagious. When we believe we give people the opportunity to believe. I encourage you to read this quote a few times (even if you've already memorized it like myself!)

Ask yourself- who are you not to be?

Whatever your passionate about, today decide to believe in it and don't look back. You'll be surprised how many people become liberated from you.
