We towed the truck to the junk yard And hiked our way to the next beach. You did not press your fingertips into the sand And you said “I don’t hold onto the grains of sand Because they fall away eventually”
We glided our toes along the sand And they danced on my skin, Each particle a brush of paradise.
I realised the world doesn’t owe me And I don’t owe it.
“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.”
