Happy MONDAY! TGIM! QUOTE OF THE DAY: “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, A Return to Love: Reflections on the Principles of “A Course in Miracles” THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Welcome to your last email of 2021 and what a year it has been! WHEW! I like this quote above because growing up I got some subtle messages such as, “don’t take up too much space” and “don’t put your needs on other people.” I am slowly and continually healing from these messages. I like this quote today because it encourages me to continue to share my light and to believe that I can be great. I hope that in 2022 you can find some hope.
I hope that in 2022 you can find community.
I hope that in 2022 you can make new friends and strengthen your support network.
In 2022, I hope that you can find love and that you can love yourself.
Because in the end, it’s all about love. AFFIRMATIONS OF THE DAY: 1) I love those around me and I love myself. 2) I happily give and receive love each day. 3) Each day I am so grateful for how loved I am and how much people care about me.
