Who Are You Not to Be?

"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 and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be?

You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn't serve the world. There's 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'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


- I am overwhelmed and gobsmacked at all the lovely words and thoughts aimed at me the last few days. Thank you. If I were to get hit by a truck today and die, I would have the BEST funeral. I'd totally perch my bony dead ghostly arse in the front pew, and listen to everybody cry and talk about what a wonderful person I was. (Of course, I can be an arsehole too ... but you can't talk ill of the dead at a funeral. Whisper it, maybe .... "She thought she was soooooooo cool!!" Shhh.)

- 37 is NOT old. I retract that statement. Sorry!

99? Now THAT shit is old.

- Ok so now I need to upload more ve-ry cool music onto my party playlist. Any suggestions? Yes Dora .... I will TOTALLY post video of me and my sisters singing bad karaoke. If they let me. They'll so let me. Where do you think I learnt my shamelessnessness from?


  1. WOOOO! Video of YOU and your sisters singing! *excited*

  2. LMFAO Thank for the retraction. You crack me up!!!

  3. That mind of yours bro - seriously, I marvel at it daily lately, sitting in the front row of your funeral watching everyone crying about you HAHAHAAAAAAAAAAA. Mate if I'm there I'll sit right on up there in the front row and put my arm around you and laugh and laugh and laugh!
