Let Your Light Shine

Today is twenty four hours of new time.  Time you didn't have yesterday and time you won't have tomorrow.

Today is a day for you to shine.  In the words of South African President Nelson Mandela (please read below), "We are powerful beyond measure."
Today is a day to discover something new about yourself.  A day to show what you are about.

It's your day. . . Find your power!
Find Your Power
Our Deepest Fear
From Nelson Mandela's 1994 inaugural speech

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our Light, not our Darkness, that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, who I am 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 enlightening about shrinking so that
other people won't feel unsure around you.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God
that is within us.
It is not just in some of us;
it is in everyone.
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.


  1. Thank you for this post. My dear husband of 43 years went to be with Jesus the 9th of Dec. Today is his 65th birthday and I miss him terribly. I know where he is and that is reason to rejoice! I look forward to our reunion, it will be grand.

    I look forward to reading more of your blog.
