Quote of the day

Author and lecturer Marianne Williamson:

"'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 doesn't serve the world. There's 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 subconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we're liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."


Talk amongst yourselves.

Yes, this is a great quote.
Thanks for visiting. I read your 100 things. Haven't done that yet.
I really liked the one about needing an epidural to raise the kids...Nyssa is my only one but this is soooooo true. They finally grow up and go off to college and then it is almost worse. They call every day asking your opinion on everything for about two weeks and then it stops. And you start wondering if they are just studying or are they not calling because they know they wouldn't like your opinion about something. Ah, the guessing game that comes with kids.
