This statement is often attributed to Nelson Mandela, which I’ve always thought was pretty funny because I just could never picture him using the word “fabulous”. But it is a truly wonderful quote by Marianne Williamson and I CAN see her using it:
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
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
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 everyone, and as we
Let our own light shine,
We unconsciously give
Permission to do the same.
As we are liberated
From our own fear,
Our presence automatically liberates others.
