"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 and 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. As we let our light shine, we consciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence actually liberates others."
being an individual statistic is like eating apple pie on a warm day...with ice in your pants
