"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.

It is in everyone. And as we let our own light shine we unconsciously give people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear our presence automatically liberates others." --Nelson Mandela 09/14/2020
