Live as though You Believe It

My years of counseling training pale beside this thoughtful observation from Nelson Mandella. I hope you will consider living from this perspective:

"Our worst 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?..."



  1. Dear God, I love that man!! What a fabulous quote ... it just made me sit up straighter in my seat ... it reminded me of something NFN told me once when I said I wanted to be able to walk into a room with my back straight ... she heard this quote from someone and it's a gem, "Walk as if there is a host of angels flying before you heralding your arrival." Whew!

  2. melissa, what a great visual. i will use the angels heralding the next time my knees knock.
