I was reminded of this great speech today by Nelson Mandela! Take a moment and let these words seep into your spirit!
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 frightens us.
We ask ourselves
Who am I to be so brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?
Actually who are we not to be?
You are a child of the universe…
Your playing small doesn’t serve the world.
There is nothing enlightening about shrinking so that others won’t feel insecure around you,
We are all meant to shine, as children do,
We are born to manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we’re liberated from our fears, our presence automatically liberates each other.
