“I’m not feeling like myself today.”


We have this sense that there is an “us”,

a true self,

just out of our reach.


We are right:

We all have a  true and best self,

and if it’s out of our reach, we have put it there.


Our fears,

our insecurities,

our habitual emotional responses

keep us from living what we know is true.  


Still, there are

bright spots--

these moments and days,

when we get out of our heads

and into our hearts,

to act, speak, and love as our true self.  


Living an Uncommon Life

is nurturing those bright spots,

to name, claim, and live

our true self



May you feel like your true self today.
