Thursdays Child

Thursdays child has far to go.

I am a Thursday child and this is my first post under this catergorie. Thursdays post will be anything I feel like posting. In other words Thursday post is all about things I like or don’t. Each week you will also find the poem from which Thursdays child was taken at the end of the post. This week I have choosen to share a passage from Marianne Williamson’s book A Return to Love:

  Our Deepest Fear

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.

Our deepest fear is that we are poweful beyond measure.

It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.

We ask ourselves,

Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?

Actually, who are you not to be?

YOU ARE A CHILD OF GOD.

Your playing small does not serve the world …

We were born to make manifest the glory of God within us.

It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone.

And as we let our own light shine, 

We unconscilously give other people

Permission to do the same.

As we are liberated from our own fear,

Our presence automatically liberates others.”

What wonderful words to live by “don’t play small”.  I actually have this up in my bedroom to remind  me often not to “play small”. I hope you enjoy and maybe find a little inspiration in it. So go out and play big and help the world around you.

Monday’s Child

Mondays Child is fair of face,

Tuesdays child is full of grace,

Wednesdays child is full of woe,

Thursdays child has far to go,

Fridays child is loving and giving,

Saturdays child works hard for his living,

And the child that is born on the Sabbath day

Is bonny and blithe, and good and gay.
