I was given this quote today and it cried out to be blogged:
Our worst 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, talented, beautiful, fabulous?" Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God, and your playing small does not serve the world. There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We were born to make manifest the glory of God within us. It's not just in some of us, it is in everyone, and as we let our 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 WilliamsonSo I ask you: what makes you brilliant? Name and claim just one thing for yourself today. I am brilliant at listening and engaging others in self-reflection. It is amazing how hard that sentence is to write but it can be helpful to acknowledge our strengths as well as our weaknesses. So what makes you brilliant? Will you share it with us?
