Inspirational quote

“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.”

Today we talked about our talents and how we need to work on them and find new ones. I'm really going to work on that this year.


  1. I love the sentence "Your playing small does not serve the world." That is so true. Thanks for posting this. I need to be better about sharing the (few) things I am good at.

  2. I agree!
    I put that on there because it is something that I REALLY need to work on. I don't want to be like that one guy who buried his talent instead of trying to multiply his number of talents.

    Thanks, Emily!
