A Favorite Inspirational Quote

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.

I hope you draw some wisdom from this quote. I first heard it from a friend I met in my first year of college. She told me she wanted to be the first female President of the US! A woman with that kind of ambition is a good match for a quote like this, don't you think?

So maybe I will be bold today and let you in on a little secret. Did you know I co-own a small screen-printing business?  I love giving discounts to members of MBN, SBC, and non-profits. We are the sustainable choice! http://www.alpenglowapparel.com/
