Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?

I wanted to share one of my favorite quotes with you. Grab a cup of coffee, or your water, get comfy, and read with me. Does it speak to you? Because it sure does to me.

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. ~ Marianne Williamson


  1. Love it! I will have to remember this as I go forward as making my self less to make other people feel more is a very bad habit for me.

  2. Amy, I love reading your blog.

  3. I always thought that was a Nelson Mandela quote. Either way, it is a great one!
