As I prepare to give a talk tomorrow to a group of middle school and high school girls on self confidence and being successful in life it makes me realize that every now and then we need to be reminded that we are amazing, even as adults.
Here is one of my all time favorite quotes:
Our Deepest Fear…
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. Marianne Williamson
Know that you were born to be amazing. It is not something you have to deserve or be worthy of. It just is.
Let your light shine.
