“A queen is wise. She has earned her serenity, not having had it bestowed on her but having passed her tests. She has suffered and grown more beautiful because of it. She has proved she can hold her kingdom together. She has become its vision. She cares deeply about something bigger than herself. She rules with authentic power.”
― Marianne Williamson
Something stirred in me when I heard this quote. And it still continues to give tingles and well up with resonating tears every time I read it, say it out loud or hear it spoken again. It has something for me. It speaks to me.
This quote is from a book by Marianne Williamson, A Woman’s Worth. While I have not read it, it is on the top of my “next to read” list purely because of this quote.
So while I have not entirely let it all immerse into me, I have begun to work on my realm, to immerse myself within it. I have decided that while I build my kingdom, I will treat every realm I come into contact with as my own and as an opportunity to be my authentic self, to hold that kingdom together as best I can while I am in it and to always keep my eye on my vision, on that something bigger than myself because ultimately, that is my realm.
