Do some people make you feel inspired or inadequate?
Oftentimes, we share bits and pieces of ourselves ...
our lives ... only to watch as our friends or family
roll their eyes back into their heads,
blowing us off as idiots,
or worse, a "Goody Two Shoes".
Don't ask ... if you're not genuinely interested.
Don't mistake another's knowledge for uppityness.
It's a good way to encourage them not to
share any news or info, good or bad.
There is always a better way!
I came across this blog today and I'll just say .... Ditto!
Not Dabbling in Normal
. . .just sayin!
I will instruct you and teach you the way you should go. Psalms 32:8
With everything that has happened to you, you can either feel sorry for yourself or treat what has happened as a gift. Everything is either an opportunity to grow or an obstacle to keep you from growing. You get to choose. -Dr. Wayne Dwyer
We must be the change we wish to see. -Ghandi
Every time you suppress some part of yourself or allow others to play you small, you are in essence ignoring the owner's manual [God] gave you and destroying your design. - Oprah
Live up to the best that is in you: Live noble lives, as you all may, in whatever condition you may find yourselves. -Henry W. Longfellow
If it is to be, it is up to me! Unknown.
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, and 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.
