Are you playing small?

We ask ourselves, “Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?” Actually, who are you not to be?  - Marianne Williamson


33August is gone! And my travels are complete. I returned a few days ago from Winston Salem, Omaha, Greenville, & Atlanta. Last month’s newsletter was about who we will influence. I randomly found 8 students in Winston Salem who I was able to touch.

What did I learned from that experience? I learned that the most influence I had on them was by being brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous. Although I gave them advise, I realized, it wasn’t until they saw my wisdom in action, on stage performing, that gave them the boldness to be GREAT. One of the students came to me 2 days later and said, “A recuiter from NYU saw my monolgue & wants to sit and talk with me! Thank you for your wisdom & your confidence. It helped me to be my best today.”

You never know who is watching you and how that might influence who they will become in the future.


Check out the fabulous review in the Winston Salem Journal for Lady Patriot.


Review for Lady Patriot


Are you playing small? Or you are being brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous?



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…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



Have a fabulous August.
