Our Deepest Fear
by Marianne Williamson

“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.”

Katie you are so right. That has always been my biggest fear. Being TOO fabulous. I don't know how to overcome that one. I guess I will just have to try harder to look worse and not be so great. You guys should come over today. k??

Katie, I love this quote too. I heard it for the first time on my mission and it has made a huge impact on my life. That is why I am so fabulous today. Julia is too fabulous though. I agree that she needs to try a little harder to not be so great. We'd all feel a little better about ourselves if she did;) Hey Julia, where's our invite, huh?
