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.

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

so that other people won't feel insecure around you.

We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It is not just in some of us; it is 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

But he is my biggest pride.

in whom is embodied all goodness,
and who directs all things for the good of his children.

remember what the flight attendant says,

your family, your friends, and your community
is the example you set, leading a great life that inspires
those around you to emulate your being.

is stingless indeed,
and as beautiful as life.
