Favorite Quote:
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.

It’s said that we don’t appreciate what we have until it’s gone. That we don’t give thanks to the things that really matter in life and give thanks to the ones that don’t. When at any minute it could all be taken away from us, gone and never to return. The things some are deprived of.
What if?
What if we weren’t who we are today?
What if we didn’t stand this way?
What if the sun didn’t rise?
And we saw no stars in the skies?
What if everything we loved disappeared?
And we were always filled with tears?
What if?
And that’s the biggest issue in our life today. We as human beings aren’t thankful for what we have in our hands. We don’t see what can one day be gone and out of our reach.
What if we had nothing?
What if it is all just a dream?
What if life wasn’t what we thought it was?
What if life actually goes by in a blink of an eye?
What if?
