I’m trying to get back into tumblr… I don’t know if this is good or bad or indifferent.
Preferably there with a cup of tea and Gerard Butler mowing the lawn.
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.

I wish I was standing here just now. No papers to grade, no distractions. Just me and the waves on the rocks.
I had been my whole life a bell, and never knew it until at that moment I was lifted and struck.
