It Takes Courage to Grow Up and Be Who You Really Are!

No, it’s not about retail therapy, but his therapist did suggest he go shopping and he’s not alone.

I’ve supported many clients upon therapists’ suggestions….It’s about getting a #conscious #connection to #whoyouare. It’s about giving yourself permission to be known by yourself – and giving yourself permission to eventually be known by others.

In the end, it’s really about the process of conscious connection, discovery, and celebration and I find it an incredible privilege to be invited into such a sacred space – my job is truly humbling.

Do you want to be known or do you want to be veiled? ….And you got it. When I ask about being “known”, I don’t mean *having your name in the lights* kind of known.

E.E. Cummings said it best, “It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are.”

My personal/professional experience continues to remind me that it does take (great) courage to become who you really are. The other day (which I did call brutal), I felt like all day I was gasping for air as I was finding my courage and voice to simply “be heard” – but I hung in there. If you can relate, may you travel with grace, meet safe travel companions for your journey, and find soft spots for refreshment along the way.
