What Does Graduation Make Us?

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, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. 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. 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 permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others. ~Marianne Williamson

As Caitlin graduated from BYU-Idaho I got to thinking about the potential that is stored in each one of us while attending that great university. We are powerful beyond measure. Receiving an education has given Caitlin (and me) the opportunity to go into the world and shine.

What a great opportunity!

We are now going into the world as adults (sort of) to give to others. May we always keep that in mind as we go about acting like adults. Remember that we are made powerful and we should act accordingly.

Caitlin graduated in December and now gets to join the ranks of responsible adults. Luckily we both received our training in one of the greatest universities. So grateful to have been able to attend BYU-Idaho.
So proud of the little grad.

The whole fam-damley that came up.
