First off! It’s MONDAY! get ENERGIZED! I know, I know, i’m asking for A LOT!
Haha, ok, back to the topic at hand.
I attended a leadership conference the week before last, and I heard something there that resonated with me. Then, I went home to tell my mom about what I heard, and she said the same thing. I just wanted to share this quote with all of you as you start your week:
“No one can take your power. You GIVE it away. No one can take your authority. You GIVE it away.”
So, in that, I will leave you all with this quote by Marianne Williamson, which i’m sure all of you have heard before:
“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, 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 are all meant to shine, as children do.
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.”
It could be the leadership conference, or maybe it’s the fact that I am graduating in May, but i’m on an inspirational trip, haha. I guess we shall see how long this will last.
I hope you all have a great week!
