Our Deepest Fear

Starting tomorrow, we have over 525,600 minutes to create our own history, 525,600 minutes, y’all!, so remember the wise words of  Dr. Martin Luther King:

“You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.”

While it’s wonderful to set new year’s resolutions, would it not be more powerful to just bless the past and let it go, so that we can make a fresh start and strive to reach our best potential from this moment instead?

So, when the clock strikes midnight tonight, remember that you have over a ½ million minutes of possibilities in the new year and consider this from Marianne Williamson:

“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.
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.”
