Notable Quote

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. Playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. 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.”

I wish I could tell you who said this. I can't. I found it on a friend of a friend's Facebook page, and I thought it was wonderfully fitting for these times, both for me, and for most people trying to make their way in these interesting times.
