Have you managed to turn a negative situation into something more positive?
Do you know of someone who has managed to overcome disadvantage or adversity?
Do you have a favourite quotation or poem which inspires you?
Why not share it here? Sometimes all it takes is the right words at the right time to make a BIG difference.
To start the ball rolling, here's a quote which Nelson Mandela used in his inauguration speech and taken from 'A Return to Love' 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 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.”
So, why not start shining your own light and lighting the path for others? If you would like to see more about positive thinking and motivation, or if you have any inspiring quotes or stories to share, please comment below, or contact me using this link.
