“Forgive anyone who has caused you pain or harm. Keep in mind that forgiving is not
for others. It is for you. Forgiving is not forgetting. It is remembering without anger. It

pathway to a new place of peace where you can persist despite what has happened
to you.”

Les Brown

positive sense.”

Anne Morrow Lindbergh

“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 meat 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 I 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 light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from or own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

Marianne Williamson
