Day 30 - My Dream for the Future

I dream that someday I will be the person I want to be...

I will work less, play more.
I will criticize less, love more.
I will shy away less, and step forward more.
I will lecture less, inspire more.
I will begrudge less, forgive more.
I will doubt less, trust more.

"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, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking 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. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."

Thanks for reading, folks. Sorry it took a lot longer than 30 days...

I love that quote, one of my favorites as well :) I really may have to steal the 30 day thing... I so enjoyed yours!
