Sunday Is My Favorite Day

Sunday is the day for reflection and renewal. I think it is my favorite day...this Sunday in particular. You see, today is the day a new chapter in my life begins. I am strong! I have always been strong for everyone else, but from now on, it will be for me. I am proud of who I am and what I have accomplished and I have nothing to prove. I want to look back upon these days and know that I lived them to the fullest. Recently, I came across this excerpt that has changed my life.

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

I cannot read it and think to myself, "Hmm, very inspirational...I agree". Instead, I must live in this way. I need to liberate myself from the fears that have controlled me so long.

So today I will view myself in a new way. I will be proud of who I am and what I have accomplished. And, most importantly, I will listen to my heart.
