Good Morning!


In just two days we will be celebrating Halloween here in the U.S.  I have always enjoyed the costumes and candy, but never quite understood the fascination with things scary. I figure if I want to get scared, all I need to do is to watch the news or read a newspaper.  I think I’ll focus on the fun stuff and leave the Haunted Houses to the more courageous folks.


This week, many kids and adults will be wearing masks as they dress up for Halloween festivities. It makes me think about the many masks that we wear in our every day lives; in hopes of feeling loved or sometimes, safe.  I used to solidly identify with my over-confident businesswoman self or my always-needing-to-be #1 self.  What I didn’t realize was that by hiding behind my masks and not allowing my Authentic Self to come through, I never really got to be “seen.”  It wasn’t until my head injury that I had the chance to explore who I really was and to start to share her with others. 


Frequently, we are frightened of being rejected or sometimes we simply have not given thought to who we really are. As children, we often unconsciously mold ourselves into being who we think we need to be to make others happy or to be loved. And then years later (often in mid life) we find ourselves questioning exactly who we are anymore. 


The good news is that you can ask yourself the following questions in this very moment and start to allow your Authentic Self to shine.  Who am I really?  Which mask(s) am I ready to discard?  What might I find underneath?


By courageously being who you really are, you give us the opportunity to see, love and value you fully and completely. There is only one unique and brilliant YOU in the entire Universe and only you can decide when you are ready to share yourself with the world.  I hope that you will decide to do so soon (or celebrate the fact that you already have) because you are pretty darn amazing!


Have a courageous week!



Quote of the Week

Quote of the Week:  "Let the world know you as you are, not as you think you should be, because sooner or later, if you are posing, you will forget the pose, and then where will you be?"
- Fanny Brice


Question:  Where in your life are you "posing?" I dare you to show your real self.


Affirmation:  "I easily find the courage to be Authentic in all that I say and do. In doing so, I am free and it feels great!"
