[Day 13] Favorite Quotes

Today is day 13 of the blog challenge. After 12 days of really long posts, I’m going to give myself a little (and much needed) break.

My topics to choose from are:

1) Favorite Quote

OR

2) Philosophy of life – where it came from, how it’s different than what you were taught growing up.

I’m going to share a couple of quotes that’ve stuck with me over the years.

I have always had a fascination with dichotomy. Black and white. High and low. Dark and light. My life has been characterized by extremes and my personal mission has been to find and maintain a sort of equilibrium.

So first up, a quote by Marianne Williamson I read when I was just a teen and has sunk in more throughout the years.

Marianne Williamson quote

Here’s the whole quote:

“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 frightens us most. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and famous?’ 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 people won’t feel insecure around you. 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 all of us. And when 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.” -Marianne Williamson

And two, is by my favorite band of all time, mewithoutYou. What I appreciate most about this band is how honest and emotional their music is. This is from a song called “O, Porcupine.”
