This was going to be a spur of the moment blog post as I was just sitting on my bed and reflecting on the day's activities (another way of saying, sitting around doing nothing). I remembered something I read in my devotional a few days ago and it reminded me of a write up I had seen before, so I thought I should share it with you guys. Bear in mind that this is not a fashion post.

"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 manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It is not just in some of us, it is in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
And as we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."
- Marianne WIlliamson.

"Nothing grieves God's heart as much as seeing the children He loves fall short of his plan and provision for them. He wants you to succeed. He wants you to reach the top and become the best. He detests you stopping before reaching the top."
- Pastor E.A Adeboye (Open Heavens).

I hope you know that there can never be too many lights in the world, don't shrink yourself because someone is not comfortable, don't let the fact that your friend does something that you are interested in, stop you from doing it. I just want you to understand that you were not placed in this world to be ordinary, so stop pretending to be average, shine and let shine.  Talk to you soon xx.
