Nebraska, here I come.

May 22, 2010

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. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and famous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that people won’t feel insecure around you. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in all of us. And when we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.       -Nelson Mandela 
My brother's so rad. He's always looking out for me. This is one of my favorite quotes and he sent it to me while I was in Boston, and it applied so adequately there, and it seems rather fitting now.

It just recently hit me that I'm moving to Nebraska. Ne-bras-ka. After finding directions via I found that Creighton University is 20 hours and 2 minutes away, and exactly 1277.93 miles away.

I'm moving away from everything comfortable in my life to someplace I've never been, never seen and have no idea about. To say my deepest fear is that I'm inadequate would be the understatement of the century. It's one of my deepest fears, but what if, what if I am powerful beyond measure? I too can be liberated from my own fear. I know I can do this, I believe in myself, and as long as I hold true to that, my deepest fear will be nothing but a whisper of doubt in the back of my head.

Nebraska, here I come!


  1. Congrats lady! Ah this makes me happy... Tyson's family is from Blair, NE (it's 30 minutes from Omaha), my cousin and so many of our friends live in Omaha as well... If you need anything just let me know and I'm sure they can definitely show you around or help you with anything. We also visit a lot so I will let you know when we are in town :) So happy for you!!


I love hearing from all of you and greatly appreciate all your feedback and comments! xx Kristen
