My Dear Friend,
Today my message is especially for you, and inspired by simply knowing you.
You once gave me a book of quotes to help me find focus and encouragement in your absence. This book sits front and center on my desk and in my world.
This morning as I read through the wisdom in this book of “Moxie”, your inner spirit jumps out to me yet again. I see your strength shine through as I read what I hope you begin to understand:
“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 frightens us most. As we ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of the universe. You were born to manifest the glory of the universe that is within us. It’s not in nust some of us; it’s in everyone.” (#mariannewilliamson as quoted in Moxie)
This, my sincere friend, this is how I see you. This is how others that matter in life see you. This is how I hope you see yourself.
Please own the talent within you that others seek to takeaway. They likely are afraid that once you know this in yourself, they will lose control. Please recognize your inner strength, your intelligence, and your incomparable beauty. Learn to soar. Learn that you are magnificent.
This is my wish for you. I ask only one favor in return. Please go and stand in front of the mirror and repeat to yourself the words of Margaret Thatcher – because you can!
“If it’s me against 48, I feel sorry for the 48!”
And know that you are admired and you are loved. Most importantly, you are not alone.
Love always and with lots of Moxie,
PS…Please feel free to share these words with someone who may need to hear them. And remember to thank the people who inspire you – always!
