LET YOUR LIGHT SHINE

A friend of mine once gave me this inspirational writing from Marianne Williamson as a gift. I have posted this in my office and have since read it many mornings to help center me. I hope you will find it as useful as I have…

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 enlightening about shrinking so that other
people won’t feel unsure around you.

We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within
us.
It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone.

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

Challenge: Read this speech every morning before you start your day. When you have a decision you are struggling to make due to fear - - read this to help guide you in your decision. And when you find yourself staying in a relationship because you believe it is better than being alone (which is fear) - - read this and realize you deserve more.
