Don't let anyone take your light

Don't let anyone take away your light

When we worry about what others think about us that is when they can take away our light
We become what they think we should be.
Not what we are.

It happens all the time.
 In Schools
On the playground
On the job
In our marriages
In our families
Be who you were truly meant to be.  
Don't let them take your light away
Don't allow it!!

I will leave you with one of my favorite quotes 
 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.
~Marianne Williamson~

 Let your love Shine through!!!

Amaising paintigs, I love them both, but the first is still a little more for me. The backround is so interesting and the light of the face is shining. And it remembers us about the text.
I take this painting and wice words with me. Thank You :-)
