Sweet Mary, Joseph and St. Jude...I'm bouncing, I'm pinging, I'm dancing, I'm filling my kitchen, my table, my bathroom, my space with these...and so much joy in my soul.
As such, I've been immersing myself in a couple of programs that are making me smile, helping me to dive into the deepest desires of my heart and surrounding me with incredible, inspiring, glorious girlfriends. More on that in another post.
The other night, while on a call with all of them, this quote emerged. I had forgotten it and now that I've found it, I'm adopting IT as my mantra for the year that I'm calling my year of wild abandon skinny dipping in the waters of freedom...check it out...
Goose bumps as I type the words. Excitement for what comes next. I really, truly can hardly stand it. Much like the buds that are emerging from the earth, the green that is poking through, heading up toward the sunshine and the blue skies...I can feel it. I can feel me returning, ascending, but anew.“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
Here's to lots of walks in the park. Here's to running, particularly to the big race before my 40th. Here's to yummy wine and sushi. Here's to hot baths and tea. Here's to good friends and soul sisters. Here's to filling me with love, acceptance, hope and the belief that liberated from my own fear, the sky is the limit.
