Beginning when we are girls, most of us are taught to deflect praise. We apologize for our accomplishments. We try to level the field with our family and friends by downplaying our brilliance.

You lend your light to one person, and he or she shines it on another and another and another. And I know for sure that in the final analysis of our lives when the to do lists are no more, when the frenzy is finished, when our e mail inboxes are empty the only thing that will have any lasting value is whether we’ve loved others and whether they’ve loved us.
