Monday Inspiration: Let Your Light Shine

I'm going to try something out on this blog for a bit: Monday Inspiration. These are going to be stories or quotes that I especially like and think are worth sharing.

I found the first one through one of my friends, James Croft, who is an editor for The New Humanism.

He has part of the following on is facebook page for his tagline under the profile picture:

"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."

--Marianne Williamson
Are you inspired yet?

I know I have these grandiose ideas for blogging that frequently fall short but, I already have another post scheduled for next Monday, so you at least get two weeks of this. :)
