Inspiration Report

This is a very popular quote from author Marianne Williamson. You’ve probably read it before, but clear your mind and read it with fresh eyes today. Take some time to meditate on these words, because if they sink down into your spirit, you may never be the same.

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.

Shine on, readers. Shine on.
