What to say?

First of all, I am sorry I haven't written in so long.  February was a crazy month and I got swept up in it and ended up a little crazy myself.  Don't worry, I am recovering well and I can't even express how nice it is to feel like myself again!

My Mom always says I am better when I am writting.  So, my question is: did I stop writting becasue I went a little crazy, or did I go a little crazy because I stopped writting?

Mostly it had to do with not really knowing what I wanted to say.  I mean, at times this month I could hardly put together a coherent sentence let alone a whole blog post!! When my words fail me I look to others to find an expression of what I am thinking of feeling.  So, here's a beautiful and inspirational quote for you to read and cntemplate, as I have been doing this month.

"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's 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're liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."
Marianne Williamson  (A Return to Love: Reflections on the Principles of "A Course in Miracles", Harper Collins, 1992. From Chapter 7, Section 3])

I promise more of an actual post in the next few days.  Until then, Shine on, dear readers!
