Our Deepest Fear

Alright, I'm heading to the hotel tomorrow (where I'll be staying the whole weekend with the other contestants with little contact with the outside world) but I have one quote to share before I go.  It pretty much speaks for itself.

“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's not just in some of us; it's 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.”
-Marianne Williamson
Maybe read it one more time.  Let it sink in.  Write it down.

  1. Thanks for that beautiful quote, Kristin! I'll be cheering you on this weekend! ~Jackie

  2. I get chills every time I read that quote. You're going to be great, Kristin. Have a ton of fun!

  3. Talk about synchronicity. I just watched The Shadow Effect DVD from Debbie Ford's book of the same title and heard Marianne Williamson read that quote in her own words then went onto your blog for the webcast link and there it was.
    It's so perfect too. By shining your light so bright you are giving others permission to do the same and that is your Victory to Victory speech!
    I will be watching and just know my thoughts are with you and this is your launching pad so hope you are ready for the ride of your life kiddo!
    P.S. Are you SURE that's not you in that swimsuit?????
