I'd like to share an earlier post I published when I was a new blogger. I hope the 3 or 4 people who were reading my blog in May don't mind a "repost". :)
Every year we see at least one new breed of bird in the Shady Grove. Here is the latest to show up at our bird sanctuary, a red headed woodpecker.
I'd like to share something with you in hopes it will encourage you to unleash your creativity and share it with others. In my life I've met many people that tell me they can't do something because it's too hard or challenging. Along time ago I learned that I can do anything if I put my mind to it. It may not be perfect or beautiful the first time but each succesive time I work at it I refine my skills.
This is one of my favorite quotes by Marianne Williamson. It reminds me to keep reaching for the lightness in myself and to share it with others in hopes they will pass their own light on.
"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 frightens us most. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and famous?' 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 people won't feel insecure around you. 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 all of us. And when 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.”
I challenge you to be all that you are meant to be, share it, and never, never, never give up.
