And as 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."

Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one's courage.
~ Anais Nin ~
It is only with the heart that one can see rightly,
what is essential is invisible to the eye.
~ Antoine de Saint-Exupéry ~
We never know how high we are
Till we are called to rise;
And then, if we are true to plan,
Our statures touch the skies.
~ Emily Dickinson ~
You must learn to be still in the midst of activity
and to be vibrantly alive in repose.
~ Indira Ghandi
Often people attempt to live their lives backwards:
they try to have more things, or more money,
in order to do more of what they want so they will be happier.
The way it actually works is the reverse.
You must first be who you really are, then, do what you need to do,
in order to have what you want.
~ Margaret Young ~
Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are.
Let me not pass you by in quest of some rare and perfect tomorrow.
~ Mary Jean Irion ~
Our deepest wishes are whispers of our authentic selves.
We must learn to respect them.
We must learn to listen.
~ Sarah Ban Breathnach ~
When we speak we are afraid our words will not be heard or welcomed.
But when we are silent, we are still afraid.
So it is better to speak.
~ Audre Lorde ~
If you do not tell the truth about yourself
you cannot tell it about other people.
~ Virginia Woolf ~
Remove those 'I want you to like me' stickers from your forehead
and, instead, place them where they truly will do the most good --
on your mirror!
~ Susan Jeffers
In 2014, the initiative expanded to include work on measurement. In developing the Roadmap, it became clear that many studies utilize different outcome measures, making it difficult to compare outcomes across studies and build the global body of evidence. To address this, Measuring Women's Economic Empowerment , published in June 2015 as a companion to the Roadmap report, summarizes recommended measures to assess direct, intermediate, and final outcomes of women's economic empowerment programs. Outcomes of interest are women's increased productivity, income, and well-being.
