I was just over at Peonies and Polaroids, responding to one of her posts when I read a quote in the comment above me from Flora. She included the following quote:
"Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? Your playing small does not serve the world. We are all meant to shine."
It absolutely stopped me in my tracks.
I stumbled through the rest of the comment, acknowledged Flora and then immediately looked up the quote to find the origin.
It turns out that it is abridged from Marianne Williamson.
I have transferred the words to the largest, darkest blockiest font I could find and printed them in black onto white card. The words now hang by my desk.
