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. These words were written by Marianne Williamson.  When I first read the entire message, the first two lines described what I felt in my life.  My fear is not that I am inadequate but that I am powerful beyond measure. I have spent a lot of my life working and creating new programs, better ways to get work done, and resolving issues for other people.  All the time staying in the background to not draw attention to myself.  I have let other people take the credit for my work, my creations.  I could say I was shy or that I did not want the attention, and maybe that was true.  After reading Marianne’s words I realized that to quote her, “Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that othe people won’t feel insecure.”  How true those words were. So as I accept this new beginning for my life, as I reach out to help others shine, nothing is more rewarding.  So let me leave you with one more word from Marianne, “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.”

Thank you, Marianne.

Life Choice

I think everyone is born with a predestined life.  We spend so much time ignoring where our life is heading.  Sometimes it is career choice, mate choice, or having children.  After going through all those wonder adventures or maybe not wonderful adventures everyone comes to a point in their life when everything gets quiet and you are starting to feel that tug, that feeling that their is something you are meant to do.  I call it your purpose.  At first it’s a low rumbling sound and year after year the sound get louder.  You absolutely know you are meant to do something more with your life.  I know the exact date when I could no longer ignore that feeling.  I hit a wall.  So I made a decision that changed my life and their was no turning back.  I took the steps I needed to educate myself.  To learn more about myself.  I wanted to use my new and natural skills to help others learn to listen to what the sound is saying to them.

Share your moment when you knew what your purpose in life was…..
