It is the start of a new year! I love that the new year begins on a Monday, which is the beginning of a new week. I am full of hope and inspiration to make 2018 be the best year yet! I hope you are too! My New Year’s Resolution is “To Shine”.
Marianne Williamson said it brilliantly in her 1992 work Return to Love, “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 doesn’t 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 subconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we’re liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
I have not been shy about mentioning how much I love Mickey Mouse. Normally, I wear black or grey and I have at least 20 black Mickey Mouse t-shirts. For Christmas, I received bright Mickey Mouse shirts and leggings. Look out world, I am wearing bright colors! This is 2018! I am going to Shine! Don’t you want to shine with me?
