I have always been a fan of the following quote by Marianne Williamson, “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 younot 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.”
As a result, small is no longer in my vocabulary.
I live with the belief that everything I do is a representation of me. So I do everything I can, in this little time that we have to the best of my ability.
A far as bragging rights: I took my first TRX class and didn't throw up, went skydiving and live to tell the tale, and made Yelp Elite 3 years in a row with quality over quantity, and went to Thailand for the Hangover 2 experience!
