random finding...

it has been donkey ages since there was last a random finding. in the oddest of places, a treasure hidden in the most obscure of corners was uncovered, and nothing but thought provoking it has been. and so it is...

"it’s okay to shine"

“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 most.

we ask ourselves, who am i to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented,fabulous?

actually, who are you not to be?

we are a child of god.

our playing small doesn’t serve the world.

there is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around us.

we are meant to shine, as children do.

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 permission to do the same.

as we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

apparently, even the renown and wise nelson mandela quoted this in his inaugural speech. way cool. think it can be said that my socks have been officially wowed off my tootsies while my mind has run off on a tangent for a little marathon finding that choochoo train of a thought...
