“Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be?”
These words from A Return to Love by Marianne Williamson are words that I need to hear daily. I want to reprogram my brain to truly believe in this and constantly be aware that I was “born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.”
Therefore, I’m deciding that I want to read these inspiring words every morning before I start my day. Imagine the world you would live in if you read the following out loud at the beginning of every day for the next year?
“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.”
