“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? 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 that is within us.
It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And 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.”

My life in a lot of ways is truly amazing. I have the most amazing partner, who asked me to marry him and I said yes. I have to amazing children with beautiful sunny little faces and dreams as big as the sky. I have and have known amazing friends. And still, because of my job, I find myself grappling with stress and hurt, anxiety and lack of fulfillment. I want to find that job that makes my heart sing. It doesn’t have to be every day, but it should be something that doesn’t send me home spent and near tears each day. It shouldn’t make me lay in bed in the morning, wishing for illness, the plague, or raining frogs. So I’m starting a series that I hope will help me find out what might help me find peace in my career path. I want to share that journey here. The only way I know it will be successful is to really try to teach it to others. Today, I face the fear of being powerful beyond measure and absolutely fabulous.
