I've been thinking about 'authenticity' today as I've been riding happy waves of transformation.
In the last several days, a handful of people have mentioned that I'd seemed kind of negative and angry a few weeks back, and that they are glad to see that I'm in a more positive and happy space. (That is sweet and thoughtful for them to wish me well.)
First of all, I, too, am definitely glad that I'm feeling more uplifted. A happy, inspired, uplifted state is what I am always striving toward. BUT, I am also not afraid to swim around in the muck sometimes.
Deep deep DEEP transformation sometimes requires stirring up some uncomfortable and negative emotions and feelings.
I'm someone who is *positive* about my negativity. I'm OK with feeling angry, depressed, overwhelmed, or etc, as long as I don't unpack and stay there forever.
I'm not afraid to feel and express the messy stuff, because I know that it is part of a healthy process of releasing, processing, and moving forward.
So...both in person and online, what you see is what you get with me. I show up as authentic, and I hold space for you to do the same.
Sending you all my love,
