It starts at my toes, makes me crinkle my nose

You know I've just been thinking lately about how important love is. How important it is to not only love yourself, but believe in yourself. Believe in your abilities & talents. Back in school I remember being taught about all the different types of love and all that, but that kind of took away from what love really is in my opinion. Loving others, loving ourselves, loving the things around us.  If you're feeling down & out lately remember that before others will love you you need to love yourself. Nothing bad lasts forever. Things get better, life continues to move forward and you've got to be a trooper and move on with it. 
You're going to do big things. It's okay to be afraid, and scared sometimes but you'll get out of it. One day your bravery's going to shock you. 

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 giveother people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our fear,
our presence automatically liberates others.
