I live to experience something new each day -
to learn something new,

find an ample measure of my own joy.

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.

Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?

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.

we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear,
our presence automatically liberates others.

is a greater gift than a steak dinner served brusquely.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Adding one to my count of days, or postponing
a feared death by another day do not inspire me.

bring joy into someone's life,
feel the wind newly on my skin,
touch a new fear, a new anger,
and with focused intent and good fortune,
find an ample measure of my own joy.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

keep what is worth keeping, and then,
with a breath of kindness, blow the rest away.
- George Eliot
