Stepping Into Your Glorious Light

Posted by on Mar 16, 2016 in delight, exercise, mindsets, present moment, risk, spirituality, Uncategorized, Yes | 1 comment

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.  Our deepest fear is that we’re 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? Your playing small does not serve the world. There is...

I wrote this in 2010, shortly after my mom passed away. Today, on the two year anniversary of her death, the message is just as important.   It’s been an emotional couple of weeks since my mom passed on June 27. My family flew to Philadelphia for the funeral and my father asked me to handle all of the arrangements. While it was a daunting job to...
