“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. 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. It's not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own lights shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

Ever since hearing this on Akeela and the Bee, I am moved by the place(s) in my life that lead me back to its wisdom. True wisdom.

Each of us came to the planet to work on something. For some it’s maybe fear, pride, trust, valuing yourself, share your wisdom brilliance’s, or to give and receive L-O-V-E to name a few. Whatever, your life’s lesson is....Remember you are more than enough to live your finest life and lift this planet. Thank you for sharing the journey❣️
