30 Day Personal Challenge-Post #11

{Post 265/365: Original Post: FEEL Me}
What is your favorite quote? How does it relate to your life?

“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

I BELIEVE this whole-heartedly because I KNOW that I am capable of being much more than I actually show that I am and sometimes it IS because I fear being everything I CAN be. I am LEARNING to OPEN up and SHINE with my OWN light and trying NOT to be afraid of myself or of how other people respond to me.
