Shine Baby, Shine!


"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."

It was exactly what I needed to motivate myself to get some personal things I have been procrastinating finally accomplished.

This is one of my all-time favorite quotes because it is SO TRUE. My biggest fears in life are basically ones that I have created in my own mind. I love that this speech was given by Nelson Mandela of all people. A great speech read by a great man!
