It’s Monday! A new challenge and a quote for you!
Are you joining me for the My Favorite Quotes Challenge? It’s easy. Each Monday, I share a quote that speaks to me, you then let it inspire your creativity…card, art journal page, scrapbook whatever your heart desires. Just create, have fun and share in the Embrace Your Art Facebook Group.
For the challenge, I’ve decided to create in 4×6 for most weeks…but sometimes it might be an art journal page, like today. I’m letting this be a free flowing challenge..meaning I will create whenever I can, in the format I am currently feeling but sometimes when life gets busy I may simply share the quote and you get to play.
Challenge: Create an art journal page let the quote and art journal spread inspire you.
Quote reads: “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.” Marianne Williamson
This is a favorite quote of the lovely Embracer, Patricia Jones.
My thoughts: I don’t really have any. I don’t understand this part of the quote. Perhaps I am taking it too literally. However, this quote which comes from the same passage resonates with me much more….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. I get this, I think many people shrink, hold back, don’t speak their truth in order to be sure that others are comfortable. I do it too. I am working on not worrying about those people and just living my truth each day.
Today, I include the quote in my journal to honor, Patricia.
I’d love to hear how you interpret it. Please share your thoughts below.
