Playing small does NOT serve the world.

dusted this one off from November 2011~
but it came to mind just now...my super beautiful friend Becky may need to read these words right now! :)

Our Deepest Fear by Marianne Williamson

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate, but that we are powerful beyond measure.... It is our light, not our darkness, that frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, handsome, talented and 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 were born to make manifest the glory of God within us. It is not just in some; it is in everyone. And, as we let our own light shine, we consciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
Never play small...you have small people watching you! :)

big feet, a band aid and a smile!
