Our Deepest Fear

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?- Marianne Williamson, from her book Reflections of Love

This quote has jumped out at me twice yesterday from two different sources- from the Healing After Loss book, and from the movie I watched last night Akelah and the Bee (I liked this movie a lot).

I guess this means I need to think about this quote more- I don't have anything brilliant to say about it yet, but I'll get back to you. Or if you want to tell me what it mean to you I'd love to hear it.

peace- emily
