Reset Your Life Day 1

Personal Mantra:

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 frightens us. 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.

- Nelson Mandela, inaugural address, written by Marianne Williamson

Day 1 required I choose a notebook to use specifically for the Reset and choose a personal mantra for this journey...easy right...umm NO. Gosh, this assignment was harder than expected mostly because I'm a lover of words and can never pick ONE set that suite me. It doesn't help that I'm picky about the source and the context of quotes I choose to repeat. It seemed fitting to use a quote used by Nelson Mandela during such a transformative time in his life. As far as the notebook, I'm going with an old school notebook without the ring binder. So pumped up for this.


  1. I was born to make manifest the glory of God that is in me!!! Amen Sis...WORDs to live by.

  2. Yes! By far one the few quotes I repeat consistently
