favorite thing about me: I’ve been called “a people collector”, so I guess that means I’m inclusive and fun to be around.
Achievements: I’m under 30 and a member of the senior leadership team of my business, running my own department. I’ve gotten where I am without being rude, mean, unforgiving, uncaring, ruthless, or detached. I’ve kept my personality alive and insisted that people take all of me or nothing at all. I’ve played a clean game. I’ve held others as my equal and practiced empathy and patience. I have never settled. I’ve cultivated knowledge, respect, relationships, and a zest for life that I never thought I’d see. I’ve struggled with severely disordered eating, serious mental health issues, the profound loss of my mother at a young age, the discovery and acceptance of sexual identity, and all the usual angst that comes with “growing up” - and still I'm here. Still I look for beauty every day. I look for opportunities to strengthen others. I look for ways I can continue to learn about myself and my world. I fight daily to CHOOSE to believe the good things about myself that my soul knows to be true. I choose to acknowledge my worth, despite sometimes disliking what I see in my mirror. I’m even starting to find a little twinkle in my eye that I call beautiful. Because every time I have a conversation with someone, I notice the spark of engagement in their eyes and I feel proud to see what about me truly prevails. And it’s NOT my spare tire or my bee-sting face. It’s an essence, without shape or form, that has the power to touch, lighten, and transform. I’m bragging…but why the hell SHOULDN’T I be?! Did you read what I just wrote? I’m great! (And did you know? YOU are great, too!)
Favorite thing about myself: I’m learning how to share the best parts of me without apology. It’s crazy how empowered I feel - and can, in turn, empower others - just by choosing, for once, to believe the echoes that I might be great. One of the coolest things about me is that I have a lot left to learn. That’s exciting! Additionally…I really like the shape of my eyes and the way they see things for me.
THANK YOU for promoting this effort. Thank you for providing an outlet that allowed me to reflect on and celebrate the person that I am. You are cool. This is cool.
