Last night, I watched Disney’s The Lion King Musical in Key Bank State Theater in Cleveland, Ohio. It was spectacular, to say the least. My heart is still bursting with excitement as I write this post. In celebration of such an enthralling production, I’m sharing a poem that reminded me of Simba’s fear and doubt when Nala found him in the jungle and begged him to come home and save their land. Really, this poem is for anyone who feels that they are inadequate and incapable of greatness.

Our Deepest Fear by Marianne Williamson
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?
