Forget Fitting In: Try Being Authentic Instead
Can I ask you, why do we so badly want to fit in? What is the drive, deep within us that pushes us to be anything but ourselves in order to be acceptable to, and accepted by, others? How is it possible that we choose the acceptance of our peers over our own? It seems ridiculous. And yet, we are overwhelmingly more likely to go against our own nature in order to please our friends, family and even colleagues! What is the appeal, and the pull of fitting in that is so magnetic?
Your Outlook on Life Effects your Entire Experience
A couple of weeks ago I had what I would call an ‘unlucky day’. I bruised my ankle, bumped my arm, had a bug fly into my ear and then ended the day scraping the palm of my hand open as I gracefully fell towards a closed door. Lol. I could have been fuming after all of that. I could have raised my fists and cursed at the skies.

In fact, I’m going to insist that we show up better for others when we show up for ourselves first!
Repeat After Me: I Am Enough
This blog is the result of me deciding to walk away. Not forever. Just for a little while. Just for long enough to be able to remind myself to reconnect with who I am. Because I am enough. Because, for a while there I forgot that I am enough. I forgot that I do not need to do, or be, anything to be enough. Let me explain. I am dedicated to this blog. I’m dedicated to the purpose behind it. And I am dedicated to being part of the solution in this world. I’m dedicated to you, and to serving you in any small way that God has given me the ability to do so. And, to me, that is through my words.
