You’re Fabulous. Own-it.
I have a wonderful, quirky client, who after a tough year on a personal and work front is really owning her uniqueness – she has embraced what makes her different and made it central to a new business and brand.
A well-known public speaker and marketing guru I admire wrote a book recently owning his personal struggles with mental illness and abuse.
At his book launch he said something like: ‘people say to me that it must be hard getting up and being so open and honest about this, but it’s a lot easier than trying to be something you’re not’.
I overhead a boy I liked in Year 7 say to my friends that I was a ‘weirdo’.
He was probably right. It’s only taken 25+ years but I’m okay with being weird. I’m prepared to own it.
And while I like to think I’m perfect, I know that I’m not. There are things I wish I was better at, business paths that probably make more sense than the ones I’ve chosen, but at last I’m owning it. I’m following what feels right.
And today at least, I’m okay with me, my choices and imperfectionism.
Owning it means we can be the most awesome versions of ourselves…yes we can be authentic, weird and fabulous! You just need to own it.
‘Own it’ is today’s word out of the jar. Read more about my Out of the Jar project here.
