Letting go of jealousy, so you can fulfill your purpose. Okay, I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but… Unless we’re perfect, have nothing at all to improve about ourselves or our gifts and talents (please tell me if I ever say I don’t because that means I need a big ol’ piece of humble… Continue reading Saying Goodbye to Your Green Monster
Being transparent in a social media masked world. I want to do something radical today… I want to unmask myself. To be perfectly honest, I’ve been putting off this post. Being real is so hard and I’ve been dragging my feet and arguing with myself about writing this. Showing all the ugly scars, admitting (surprise,… Continue reading My Unmasked Manifesto
