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, talented?' 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 others won't feel insecure around you. We were all meant to shine as children do. We were all born to make manifest the glory of God that's 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."
-Nelson Mandela

Comfort Zone-
Now you’re here.
Where to go?
You’re full of fear.

Stepping forward,
You hear the sound
Of melodies pleasant
And the piano key’s pound.

You’re nearing the edge,
Will you go on?
Or will you stop walking-
All confidence gone?

You will press forward?
Good choice, my friend.
Now you’re in gray.
Is this your trip’s end?

The decision is harder-
Before you is black.
White light’s what awaits you
If you turn back.

You’re stuck at this spot now
Wanting to go,
But your feet will not let you-
That black they don’t know.

Comfort Zone-
You left it behind.
Your dream is before you-
Just get past your mind.
