How do you define success?

“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.”
~Marianne Williamson

I love this quote, it touches a place deep inside me, where I know it is true.

It is the Adversary who would squash us, make us feel small and incapable.  Whisper in our ear, you are not good enough, smart enough, talented enough, you will never amount to anything.  The danger lies in accepting these ideas and repeating them in your head until you begin to own them.  To allow fear to be your master, to give your light over to Satan.

Satan cannot be allowed to win, you are too precious, too important, here, NOW, TODAY!

How do you see God?  I see a perfect being filled with light who loves us, gives us choice and accountability to grow from and answers our prayers as we need.  If we are His children, made in His image, how can we be less than He?  He loves us, our big brother Jesus Christ loves us, that alone makes us important.  A God, our God, loves you, therefore it follows that you are valuable and precious.

Start today, join with me in changing the self talk going on in your head.  Reject negative thoughts and ideas about yourself, the same as you would for your best friend.  Begin to truly treat yourself as good as you treat those around you.  Begin to think differently and positive outcomes will follow, if for no other reason than you will notice them for the first time.  You have an affect on the world around you, choose to be positive, choose to be happy, choose to fill yourselves with light and become whole hearted.  “Make manifest the glory of God that is within you.”

I am grateful that Heavenly Father is helping me move forward with gratitude and helping me become all that he would have me be.  I define success as being whole hearted; I am working toward that goal every day.
