"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 and fabulous?
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 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."
A few weeks back in sacrament meeting, my friend, Liza, gave a great talk. This quote really inspired me. She was kind enough to email it to me and I thought I would share. Some of us shine in the spotlight and some of us shrink. I'm a shrinker! But what good does that really do? it doesn't. Just something to think about.
My Sunday Five...
1. People who let their light shine.
2. I am included in everyone.
3. I am a child of God and I have a testimony.
4. Nelson Mandela.
5. Playing BIG.
