Sometimes I'm scared...

...of EVERYTHING! Well, that's not true...I'm scared of being great! That seems so BIG to say...but it's true! I don't worry about being left out or being insignificant. I am in a constant quandary about doing something that will cause people to have to, or want to, look at me! So...I don't follow through with moneymaking or award-winning ideas. I hold back intelligent solutions to impossible problems. I shut my mouth when I should scream out loud. I know that I could be a great writer, actress, dancer and singer. I could work well as a (plus-size) model. Heck, I could lose weight and work as a regular model. I could solve mathematical problems and teach the world's children how to read and add. But...I get nervous about it! What's up with that?! This isn't my first time writing about this (I don't think) and I sometimes think "here I GO!" Then, I get scared again! What the heck?!
Oh well, I'll keep praying and keep trusting that, through GOD, I CAN do everything He created me to do and use all the gifts He gave me!
Stay tuned...

Our greatest fear is not that we are inadequate

Our greatest 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, talented, fabulous?"

Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God

Your playing small doesn't serve the world

There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people
won't feel insecure around you

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 ALL of us

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
