when i want to remember my strength, i read. :)

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's 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're liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

-Marianne Williamson

whether i believe in god or not doesn't really matter, because it's about
the light,
it's about the heart.

because we should all let our brightest light shine,
and sometimes we forget
how beautiful we truly are.

warts and all.
it is our weaknesses, our vulnerability, our struggles
that truly connect us.

and if we encounter a force in life that dims this light,
[it is of my opinion that]
we should cut them out.
or at least decrease their presence.

because we are all the sun.
