‘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.
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. It’s not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own lights shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.’
~ Maryanne Williamson

we’re all connected.
it’s been said many times before by people much wiser than me, but it’s true. peel the layers back and at our cores we’re all essentially the same.
sarah and james are both extraordinarily high achievers.
to hear him articulate so well about how surreal an experience it was to be in front of family + friends was something else.
weddings are one of the few life events where this sameness we all share is in plain sight. they’re the great equaliser, and it’s a beautiful thing.
