Inspirational Quote by Marianne Williamson

I was visiting So Many Kids, So Little Time and saw a quote that I had to bring to my site.  As you are all aware, I absolutely adore quotes.  But this quote made me sit down and think.  It made me feel inspired as I am sure that it made Kimi feel at So Many Kids, So Little Time.  Her family was watching the movie Akeelah and the Bee. It is an older movie and this quote was in it.

"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 is not just in some of us; it is 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

This quote inspires me to continue working on the path I am following.  I hope that it inspires everyone.

I was very inspired by this quote! I printed it out on some lovely paper, framed it and put it on the mantle in the family room.

@Amy - thank you I just had to get it. I love that quote.

@Just Breathe - I hadn't seen the movie but I will be.

@Kimi - Awww I'm so glad that you were inspired by it. I try to find quotes that do that. This one literally took my breath away.
