Until we get to the point
where we’ve had enough
of things that hurt
and long more than anything
for a peaceful love,
we are bound to take painful roads.
We are destined to play out our frivolous disasters
until we declare ourselves finished and done with them.
How much pain do we have to suffer
before we are sure we want no more?
As much, it seems, as we have to
until we don’t.

Often misquoted as said by Nelson Mandela, here is this inspiring message that was actually written by Marianne Williamson.  Shine on!

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.
