Our deepest fear.... & insomnia

This weekend I had a conversation with a friend that challenged me! Noting how i tend to distrust the positive and blindly accept the negative. The question of confidence and honesty was raised which then lead to my most true expression of myself in my work. This conversation has made a tossed salad of my brain and has introduced me a new level of insomnia.
So as i knocked all this around in my head, I remembered a quote by Marianne Williamson that I included on my poetry dress. I feel it is time to reread and reabsorb the essence of these words. I also feel these are good words to share!! peace ~

“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.”
