A Really Great Quote

Thank you to everyone that commented on my 2 questions below. I, personally am a crafter and my little happy place, hide-ee hole is a craft room/office. I feel blessed to have a place to retreat with my thoughts and creative juices.

This quote is so amazing. It is on the cover of the latest issue of Where Women Create. Elizabeth Maxson has painted it on to her desk in her beautiful studio. Any way ... read it twice. It's worth it.

"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's 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 out own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we're liberated from out own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."
