Still on grow….my Daughter is my muse at the moment on this theme because she is going through rapid growth. Please click here to read the first part of this article.
Since my daughter started eating semi-solid and solid food, she has been more independent. Eni plays longer and my wife has more free time as she is now able to drop her with a Nanny and not worry about periodic breastfeeding.
When you grow, when you allow your light to shine, you are indirectly giving other people permission to be free and shine. Your life does not only belong to you, you are connected to other people and your success is connected to their success.
Do you remember these words from Marianne Williamson?
“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.”
Decide to shine today, decide to grow, decide to pursue success, decide to pay the price – decide to be YOU!
Not just because of the joy of success, but because of me and “a thousand and one” people connected to you.
