Born for greatness…

“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 love this quote. It reminds me that I was created wonderful, powerful, and unique. Created with a purpose that only the unique creation of myself and my life’s path can accomplish. We are to strive beyond the limits of comparison, because there will always be someone that is faster, richer, smarter, but NOT someone more Gloria-er:) Our path in life can change anytime we want it to. We have the right and power to make a choice. That does not mean we will not have tough choices or though consequences but if we are courageous enough to make the right hard choice then we will have the strength to make it through. I know this. I have lived this.

Keep reaching for your peak and stay true to yourself…
