not-too-casual-friday - fear

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 most.  
- nelson mandela, 1994 inaugural speech

thanks to theresa at inspiration cooperative for connecting bloggers on this topic.  for more reading about fear, take a visit.

courage to you, together with joy.


  1. Beautiful Noreen. Thank you.

  2. Great quote. Thank you for the reminder. Tina

  3. That is a perfect sentiment. I didn't join in on the post today because I struggled with what fear really is and didn't want to seem to make light of having true life or death fear. I love your quote because it makes me think how we/humans have unrealistic feelings that we label fear (anyway that's my interpretation). Have a great weekend! Teri

  4. Thank you for the beautiful word, Noreen. It is very similar to the poem that Tina shared on her post. Pop over, I think you'll really like it. Have a great weekend, N!!

  5. beautiful quote noreen. so fitting. happy weekend to you dear friend xxx

  6. Nelson Mandela, what an inspiring man and a thought provoking post. Thanks for sharing it with us.
