Shine On

Tis Friday the 13th!  What a wonderful day!  I always wished to be born on a Friday, but I was born on a Thursday (speaking of which… 2 months exactly until my birthday. Don’t remind me).  I’m going to keep this short and sweet and uplifting for the weekend!  Here is my favorite quotation by Marianne Williamson that I memorized when I was 17.

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 does not serve the world
There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other
people won’t feel insecure around you
We are 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 the right to do the same
As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence
automatically liberates others.

We’re all stars really… so let’s shine like stars!   Like the meteors that I saw shoot across the sky last night (which was amazing by the way)! See my regular blog if you want to know more about that.

Have a great weekend!  If you can, get out there late at night to see the stars!
