The Power Within

"What lies behind us, and what lies before us are small matters compared to what lies within us. And when we bring what is within us out into the world, miracles happen." - Ralph Waldo Emerson

What a beautiful quote and how important it is that we believe this and that we teach our children to believe it as well. We all have tremendous strength within us. We learn to cope with grief, loss, illness and disappointment. We pick ourselves up and carry on, ready to face a new day.

In addition to our inherent strength, we are all blessed with unique, individual talents. When we put aside our fears and our embarrassment, we allow our innate gifts to shine forth. Encourage your children to take risks, to reveal their gifts to the world and leave the world a better place for having done so. Have a wonderful day!
