I thought I’d posted this here a long time ago, but a search let me know I hadn’t!
Marianne Williamson‘s quote
[from her book A Return to Love]
was powerful reinforcement to me as I made my transition out of my corporate self and shape. As always when the heart is open, the right words, thoughts, feelings are available to be received.
I’ve had several conversations recently where I’ve shared the spirit of this quote with others and directed them to find it – so I thought it’d be easier to link it here!
If you are facing your own transition, reflect on what’s holding you back – it may not be barriers, it may just be the fear of how much more you will become.
“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.”
