My favorite quote (or reminder as I like to think of them)...

“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.” (Marianne Williamson - A Return to Love)

Steady on the Path

"If we stay steady on the path and don’t lose heart. If we open ourselves up to the whispers of our soul and listen in faith rather than fear." ~ Dani Sutliff

I had a lot to say today, a lot of things I wanted to blog about. It's very peaceful in the morning when you start your day out with a hot cup of lemon tea and check all of your favorite blogs to see what's true for so many terrific people that day.

I had a lot to say today. I don't anymore. As I was reading all of these fantastic insights into the world around us as seen by all of these women, most of whom I don't even know, the words, my words, seemed to leave me. It was as if a stillness came in and quieted all the chatter. It's almost like therapy some days - both the reading and the writing.

I had a lot to say today. But today, the words of my friend (above) seem to be all that I want to say. For today, I am steady on my path to open my bakery, be a contributor to CityGal Magazine, and still be the mother, sister, friend, wife and daughter that I want to be. I think fear has left me entirely about so many things and I truly believe that I am "listening in faith". These words resognated so loudly in me today, that I feel like I could conquer the world, and based on the results of this morning's actions, phone calls, emails -- I AM!

I had a lot to say today. But it sure is quiet when I don't.
