Releasing fear and moving on

Today I was just going to write up my quote, but then I found this pen called 'Tech-Riter' and I couldn't resist doodling with it! Decided to see what I could come up with in 5 minutes and this is the result - it probably means something at a subconscious level I'm sure!

Here in Australia we have this great holistic journal magazine called 'Nova', and in this month's issue I was reading about letting go of negative beliefs so that we can move forward. The article finished with this quote by Nelson Mandela, which is too wonderful not to share:

"As we let our light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our fear, our presence automatically liberates those around us." - Nelson Mandela

As I've been working on overcoming my fear of ... everything ... I thought this was a very powerful quote and a real encouragement to move forward into our true potential, which also benefits those around us - a win-win situation!

OOOhhh! Love the quote! I had it saved and used on the back of one of my studio business cards. I, too, fear almost everything. Not in a debilitating way. I'm actually quite social and 'popular', but I fear my own success and talent, or lack of it. I fear I'm just normal. Normal's not a bad thing, though! Another part of that quote is..."Your playing small doesn't serve the world. There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you". Your posts are inspiring, Lara.
