I found this quote that was tucked away. When I read it, I was astonished how powerful it is.

A Return to Love

Marianne Williamson.

“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?”

“Who are you not to be?”

In my generation it was drilled over and over again about the dangers of being vain or egotistical.

A quick look up of these words are as followed;

Egotistical: given to talking about oneself; vain; boastful; opinionated, Indifferent to the wellbeing of others, selfish.

Vain: having or showing an excessively high opinion of one’s appearance, abilities, or worth.

My thought process immediately questions, is that some type of brain washing used to suppress us of any good thoughts we have of ourselves? I can see not being selfish or boastful, but why can we not have healthy wonderful opinions about ourselves?

Let go of your fear(s), celebrate, love yourself, your talents, virtues and show compassion towards others.

I am going to give it my best try.
