WE ARE ALL MEANT TO SHINE” / NELSON MANDELA WILL ALWAYS BE A PART OF US

© Roberto Alborghetti - LaceR/Actions "Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.

It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously... [more]
