Just when you think you have yourself and “things” figured out, well. Life happens.
First of all, I have to apologize for the shortness of the blog post on 12.4.18. I intended to write more and got a sudden bout of sleepiness and went to sleep. I had it scheduled, so the blog post went out into the world as a tiny little blip of a post. It wasn’t bad, just not quite all I wanted to say out of respect to parents. I will write more about my parenting tribe another time. Thank you for YOUR grace and understanding.
I have been working up some plans that I’m not at liberty to discuss yet. I’m not sure they are going to be the plans I see to fruition. I just don’t know. I’m feeling confused, blocked, disjointed, wondering.
Mostly I’m struggling with feeling like a fraud. I feel like a fraud about half the time when starting new projects.
“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.”
– Marianne Williamson, A Return to Love
May your presence liberate others today.
And in all else, seek grace.
I seek grace today, as I struggle through yet another medical test.
Grace. Love. Acceptance. Understanding. Faith. Tolerance. Meaning.
These are the words on my mind today.
