Happy New Year!
Here's wishing you a joyful year of 2009. May good health, good luck, peace and fulfilment be with you. I wish that each day of your life is lived with enthusiasm, and that you would experience the joy of living each day to the fullest.
Please remember to stay hopefully even when things should seem to be dark.
I shall then celebrate the year 2009 and end this post with one of my favourite quotes. May it inspire!
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 is nothing enlightening about shrinking so that other people
Won't feel insecure around you.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God within us.
It is not just in some of us: it is in everyone,
And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously
Give other people permission to do the same.
- Marianne Williamson, A Return to Love (New York: Harper Collins, 1992)
