Not a survivor, a warrior #reremembering greatness

Portrait of my by @zeepix from 2013. Needed this reminder today 💜 Not a survivor, a warrior. More from that photoshoot below.

#Reposting @zeepix ‘Let me not pray to be sheltered from dangers, but to be fearless in facing them. Let me not beg for the stilling of my pain, but for the heart to conquer it.’– Rabindranath Tagore, Collected Poems and Plays of Rabindranath Tagore. Germaine de Larch

Which reminds me of this poem below: a re-remembering of greatness and not being ashamed of that or seeing it as boastful. OWNING our power is self-love, NOT pride:

“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
