Why do we women hide our age? Besides wanting to hold on to our eternal youth. This year, I will blog my transformation from my 30's to the big 4-0. Join me on my journey of discovering more of me, this new world of the forbidden 40's and proving that life begins and not ends. After all, isn't 40 the new 30?

And oldie, but goodie...This is where I am in my life.
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond imagination (measure). It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous. Actually, who are you not to be so?
You are a child of God. Your laying small doesn't serve the world. (Small games do not work in this world). There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. (For those around us to feel peace, it is not example to make ourselves small.)
We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It is not in some of us, it is in all of us.
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, simply our presence liberate others.
I combined two different versions of the same quote.
