Brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous!

I was searching the web and found this quote, only to discover that I had got the quote wrong. It isn't that you are "talented, brillliant, gorgeous and wonderful", it's actually "brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous"...

"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, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn't serve the world. There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We are born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us, it's in everyone. 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."
Marianne Williamson

I think I prefer my version but I love "we are all meant to shine, as children do."
