I know one of my biggest fears has always been recognizing how great I really am.
Most of us have been raised to be average, not great, just average. We might be told we’re wonderful and then when we dream big dreams we are told why they wont work or what is wrong with them.
As I move forward on my journey, I’m embracing the greatness within more and more each day. I know that there is a bright light that is shining within and it is ready to come out and be seen and shared with the world.
I believe Marianne Williamson says it best in 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?
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 insecure around you.
We were born to make manifest in 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 consciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear,
our presence automatically liberates others.”
So, I ask you, what are you afraid of? For me, the only thing I fear now is keeping this light inside to myself. I have a gift that I’m meant to share and share is what I plan to do.
What will you do?
