I love Marianne Williamson’s paragraph from her book “Return to Love” “……
“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.”
What is your perception of yourself? Stop. Sit quietly. Contemplate. Really? What do you really perceive about yourself? If it’s anything other than; Great, Beautiful, Magnificent, Wonderful, Fun, Happy, Loving, etc…. (because as Marianne says: Who are you NOT to BE?)
Then it’s time to dig. Dig Deep. Find what’s lurking behind the words you choose….and work on that. That issue right there. Yes, that one. The ugly one. The scary one. The tale that tells you, you’re not good enough. The story in your head that you repeat when asked how you’re doing. The conversation you keep having about YOU. The mantra that you play over & over & over again to yourself. That one. The one that keeps you stuck in negative patterns, negative attitudes, negative self-talk. It’s time to fix all that.
It’s time for an intervention with yourself. Get some soulful medication and heal the parts of you that don’t know just how AMAZING you are… as of yet anyway.
It’s a new day. And it’s up to you to rewrite, redo, rethink, reinvent, and rejoice!
Have fun….Your God Girl
