Ramadan Reflections Day 3

This day was a good and quiet day.

My neighbour's little girl graced me with her presence and joy.

Very intelligent and charming.

All my 30 years of existence, half of it was spent hearing people call me, sister, cousin or aunty.

Only today I wondered, what it would be like to be called sayang by my husband and Mummy by my kids.

I leave this in God's hands. Jaded but still going.

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.
