Hello... Been a while....
Friday, December 13, 2019
Just wanted to reach out and say "Hello" to my Sparkfamily. I hope all is going well with you.
I am going thru the emotions of missing Mon with Thanksgiving just past and now Christmas coming up. It is so quiet with a loneliness in my heart. You don't realize how much you miss someone until they are gone. I am surprised by how many people I meet that say "sorry for your loss" and then just keep talking about their issues. Sometimes I just want to ask did you hear me?? You really find out who your true friends are and also the ones that care and truly stop and take the time to listen to you. That is so important.
I got a message this morning with an excerpt of a book so I decided to make it part of my blog. For me it rings true. Something to think about.
Hope you having a good Friday the 13th!!
Our Deepest Fear -- by Marianne Williamson
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.
--Marianne Williamson, A Return to Love
