“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. 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. It's not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own lights 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 first seen this quote on a movie in the 10th grade. I was so moved by it. It is powerful and speaks truth. We are all special. We all have a purpose here. So here is a challenge to all. Take some time to think about what you can accomplish. To stop living in a shadow when your light is meant to shine. Whether it is for a new job, position, education, life, home, family. Don't be afraid to take that step. It is your time to shine.
