Thursday Thirteen #46 Inspirational Edition

Greetings, Kittens!

I was prepared to jump in with another Halloween themed thirteen this week but something else caught my attention and I couldn't help but shared. While making a wallpaper with the quote from Marianne Williamson's A Return to Love for a friend, I realized the segment I was using consisted of exactly 13 sentences. I took it as a sign that someone out there needed the words this week more than anything else I could come up with instead. So here you are, 13 Inspirational Sentences To Carry You Through The Day And Beyond.


13 Inspirational Sentences

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 Creation*.
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 Creation* 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. 

*I know I usually number things like this for those of you compelled to count otherwise, but I didn't want to break up the flow. The italics are mine; the quote is verbatim save for the use of Creation instead of God, to be as inclusive as possible. Also I know that the quote has been attributed to Nelson Mandela's 1994 inaugural speech but I couldn't confirm that with any copy of the speech I found online and so refrained from crediting him.)
