There once was boy named Guy
Who believed that he could fly
Up a hill he ran
Said “I think I can”
And then he jumped into the sky

Favorite Quote:
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, handsome, talented and 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 within us.
It is not just in some; it is in everyone.

And, as we let our own light shine, we consciously give
other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our fear,
our presence automatically liberates others."
Marianne Williamson

"Only dead fish swim with the stream"

humorous and inspiring at the same time. the last line raised my eyebrows and i had to nod...i pictured a boy jumping off a cliff trying to soar. i really enjoyed how it had good rhythm...makes it easier to read. good job and keep writing b/c that's the only way to get better :D
