When you set out to say YES to life, something funky happens. Something funky in that annoying way. Yet it's also exciting. But still annoying. Oh, I go back and forth...exciting, annoying, exciting, annoying...
This is a shot Marcy took the other day when we headed to the beach to take some winter tutu pictures. It represents a lot.
First, look how relaxed I am. And laughing...smiling in that natural way. This is rather amazing and it has everything to do with the fact that the person taking the pictures loves me. She sees me. I am seen.
Which brings me to Second -- being seen.
I went out in public in my tutu and snow boots. Big deal? Why, yes, thank you.
I also am posting a photo that is not, like, totally perfect. It's just this fun shot that I liked and so here it is. I let go a tiny bit with this act -- or quite a bit, actually.
Which brings me to the Third -- showing myself.
This is a tad different from "being seen," in that it is my actions. My willingness to put myself out there via videos, podcasts, performances, etc. I have been fighting this urge for so long...
But I said I would say YES.
And so I am working behind the scenes, getting ready to flex my Big Courage Muscle.
