I Am Enough

"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

The Optimist Creed

The Optimist Creed

"Promise yourself to be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind. To talk health, happiness, & prosperity to every person you meet. To make all your friends feel like there's something beautiful in them. To look at the sunny side of everything & make your optimism come true. To ...think only of, work only for and expect only the best. To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others, as you are about your own. To forget the mistakes of the past & press on for the greater achievements of the future. To wear a cheerful countenance at all times & give every living person you meet a smile. To give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others. To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, & too happy to permit the presence of trouble."
