Inspired much

Oh how I love this women, image from Jak&Jil. I also love my fabulous friends! One of whom emailed me an all inspiring poem yesterday that I can't help but share written by a man who knows his shit, enjoy:

Born to manifest the glory.
 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?
Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.
Your playing small doesn't serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you.
We are born to manifest the glory of God within us.
It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone.
And as we let our 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.

- Nelson Mandela
