Awesome Quote

Just to update everyone:

Paola: 1
Sleeping in: 1

Yes, I slept in today, but that's the plan. My ultimate goal is the go every morning, but for now it's 3x a week. And it was freezing this morning, so I don't even care. And my dogs were tired... poor things.

At work we have this "quote of the week" thing and I wanted to put something inspirational up because I wasn't a big fan of the other quotes we had... but last night, while I was looking through my quote book I came upon this beauty:

"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, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn't 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 are 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

And I'm pretty sure she was the one who said it. There's been some controversy on who said it, and I think it's because it was on some movie... I forget which one. I know it's about basketball though. And Channing Tatum is in it.

Anywho, this quote is awesome and I love the message. Also, you are now reading the blog of the Slate Canyon 10th Young Women's Basketball Coach!!!!! I'm super excited to coach/play (I'm not actually allowed to play, but I get to help the girls in my ward). My "supervising" leader told me, though, that none of them like to play... so we'll see how great this goes.
