This is a reminder of letting your greatness shine bright and clear.
This morning I sat in front of Twitter and wanted to make my own quote instead of posting someoneelses. In a tiny little second, with the speed of light, I thought: Who am I to believe I can come up with a quote that could possibly spread on FB or Twitter.
Even though I had that thought I wrote a quote on twitter (see it below) and when I posted it I was quit pleased with it and myself.
Then I wanted to post it on FB, and that tiny little voice came back to me, telling me that it was not enough just to write it on a post’it but I needed to make it a bit more fancy. I should find an amazing picture and put the words into the picture or maybe use my logo or a picture of myself like other great people do, you know all the famous people 🙂
And then again I thought, why do that, why complicate it when all you have to do is act instead of listening to the voice of doubt and fear.
I tell you this internal conversation only lasted a tiny little second but it could have lasted much longer because had I listened to the voice of doubt and fear, I would never have posted it and I could have continued my life with a belief saying: that I was not big enough, I was not famous enough or good enough.
I just didn’t allowed my voice to chose for me, so I wrote my quote on a post’it, took a snapshot of it with my ipad and posted it on FB.
Here is the quote:
“When life is a bitch
Kiss her and
fill her with love”
I was pleased with my decision. I was happy I listened to my greatness and didn’t play small or safe. And it reminds me of Marianne Williamsons fabulous 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.”
― Marianne Williamson, Return to Love: Reflections on the Principles of “A Course in Miracles”
And oh my world….what a fabulous respons.
My quote was instantly retweeted and I got comments on FB like: “amazing, this is just what I needed, It resonated with me, so had to share”
That reminded me even more that my decision about overruling my inner voice of doubt and fear and just act, was the right choice. Because both YOU and I are meant to shine in our greateness. We are meant to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous, abundante and much much more.
So let my inner voice of doubt and fear be a reminder of your own little voice telling you what you cannot do and just do it anyway.
Because YOU are powerful beyond measure so let your light shine
With love and light
