Who Am I Not To Be!

There is no picture today...because I have been busy framing pictures for the one
woman show that will be hung on the 29th of the month. As the show approaches and the paintings are being finished I once again fall a little bit into the FEAR. And when I do that I remember this quote that hangs in my studio....

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 will not 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. ~ Marianne Williamson

This is my wish for you today, that you print this beautiful quote out and hang it somewhere close to you. So that when you feel yourself falling...like I did today, you will read it and ask yourself that wonderful question: WHO AM I NOT TO BE?
Artfully Yours,
Pattie
