This first quote is my favorite. The words really pierce my core and inspire me to be all God intended me to be.
“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 frightens us most. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and famous?' 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 people won't feel insecure around you. 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 all of us. And when 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 found these 2 quotes on Ashley and Kelly's Facebook pages. So true!
Courage does not always roar. Sometimes it is a quiet voice at the end of the day saying... "I will try again tomorrow." (the hardest part of success is overcoming the failures along the way... I have so much respect for those who get up, dust themselves off and keep on going)
"The miracle isn't that I finished. The miracle is that I had the courage to start."
