Writing this crappy sentence is awesome and liberating! To clue you in, I spent the last month in full-fledged perfectionist mode, obsessing over how best to share my passion for authenticity in a blog. I wrote. I rewrote. I totally deleted.
I put all this pressure on what my first blog post needed to be, and thus I was completely stalled out.
Authenticity rocks except when all that realness is about you! Your authenticity is courageous and sexy; it’s intimate and transforms the world. Mine gives me the runs.
Just as the transformative book, “Everybody Poops” reminds us, we all have our shit. It’s a part of life so why not let go and have fun? Give a shit if you will. By giving up pretending to be perfect, I get to get about connecting and relating to others as my true self. It makes the experience happier, healthier and a hell of a lot easier.
