Fortification for flying

I am truly flying today. I just found out that I got an A on the paper that I struggled over last week! Hurray for me! I will admit that I had help. I had wonderful friends who took the time to actually read my paper and provide comments. Last night I also passed my final exam! There is a chance that I may get an A in this class! Today is about fortification for flying. We need nourishment. That can come in many forms. For me it has come in the form of great friends. Other times we need encouragement and sometimes we just need to be reminded not to be less than who we truly are. We were made for flying!

Marianne Williamson
A Return to Love
Reflections on the Principles of A Course in Miracles

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 dark, 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 is nothing enlightened about shrinking
So that other people won't feel insecure
around you.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God
that is within us.
It is not just in some of us, it is in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine, we
unconsciously give other people the permission
to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear,
our presence automatically liberates others.

A version of this is found in the movie COACH CARTER. It inspired me in the movie so much that I kept replaying that part just to write it down. Thank you for providing the source.
I am enjoying the postings and hope everyone will continue. I'm looking for vision within myself, among those I treasure in this life and who have gone before us. I look forward to posting something uplifting in the future.

You are very welcome. I look forward to reading your posts. Hopefully the word will get out and many more women will share this experience by reading, writing, and of course flying!
