Let’s have a party.
Bravery is called for in the post-COVID world. I’m writing a second memoir. As an Author I’ve grappled with the tone of voice of the new book.
Then I decided: to show by celebrating myself that readers have permission to light up the world with your greatness.
I wondered at how Kylie—or is it Kendall—Jenner has 125K Instagram followers.
Then I understood how a superstar could have hundreds of thousands of fans:
A person like Lizzo or Beyonce is not afraid to be themselves and express their feelings by singing songs and speaking out.
They do what a lot of us are afraid to do—flaunt what they’ve got—and we adore them for doing this.
Why can’t you and I revel in ourselves to the people we interact with? Like the Beastie Boys sang we have to “fight for our right” to party as our original selves.
At the end of the day I know I wouldn’t be happy living as a pale imitation copycat of someone else.
Let’s bring ourselves to light.
I’m not a superstar like Kendall. I’m a tiny person with a big mouth who has only 120 followers.
Getting a kick out of blogging because in the end it’s a way to make a positive difference in readers’ lives.
Blogging is a way to bring people together who wouldn’t meet IRL.
Perhaps in my humble words I can give you the courage to Celebrate Yourself.
To be continued.
