I believe that spending all our energy on being flawlessly perfect is such a great waste.

I believe that working hard to be who we think we’re supposed to be, is such a great waste too.

It makes us feel drained, exhausted and empty.

It makes us “pretend happy”.

It leaves us feeling sad and alone.

It makes us hide our unique views and bright ideas.

It makes us not create the work only we can create.

And I believe that’s such a waste of talent and potential.

I believe that’s such a waste of joy and happy.

For ourselves.  And the world.

 

I also believe it doesn’t have to be that way.

 

I believe that spending all our energy on embracing our fabulous imperfect self is the best investment we can make.

I believe that working hard to honor who we truly are, is the best gift we can give ourselves.  And the world.

It makes us feel energized, resourceful and fulfilled.

It grounds us.

It leaves us feeling uplifted and connected.

It make us share our unique views and bright ideas.

It makes us create the work only we can create.

And I believe that that’s how we tap into our talent and potential.

I believe that that’s such a source of joy and happy.

For ourselves.  And the world.

 

We’ll inspire others.

Not by trying to win them over.

But by being unapologetically us.

 

We’ll inspire ourselves.

Not by trying to be someone we are not.

But by being unapologetically us.

 

And that’s why I do what I do.

Helping you put the you back in you.

So the world can enjoy you.

And you do too.
