Question Of The Week

How Do YOU show up wherever you are?

I didn’t for a long time. I was everything that I thought other people wanted me to be. It made me angry. When I did have the space to be myself, I couldn’t do it there either because I was angry about not being able to be myself all of the time. Fear. I thought I wasn’t good enough, smart enough, strong enough. All of the things that I do or have done, all of the education and skills that I have, all of the strength that posses, and I thought that I wasn’t enough. So I dwarfed my knowledge, and I left my strength behind to become less threatening and more formidable. I lost myself, so I lost.

COVID, George Floyd, Brianna Taylor, and isolation has provided self-reflection like none other. I will show up everywhere I go. I will not dumb down anymore. What about you? Are you ready to meet the real you? Step forward.
