Creating more joy in our lives I feel starts with learning to love ourselves more!
Below is an excerpt from "A Return to Love" by Marianne Williamson
Excerpt from Nelson Mandela’s Inaugural Speech, 1994
Please note “God” is Universal – interpret based on your personal belief.
"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 brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be?
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 were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It is not just some of us, it’s in everyone.
And as we let our light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our fears, our presences automatically liberate others."
