Jim Carrey once said, “Risk being seen in all your glory.” I love that. It sounds amazing. But what if you’ve been spending your whole life hiding yourself from the world? What if you don’t know how to be seen? It can be the most difficult and courageous thing you’ll ever do. To risk being seen in all your glory requires you to dig deep and anchor yourself to something solid, something real, something true. For me, my anchor is Healing Sanctuary and Gorgeous Empathy. These are my superpowers, my North Star. Everything I do comes from Healing Sanctuary and Gorgeous Empathy. It’s the only way I can move forward with courage and risk being seen.
So, when I had the nerve-wracking and exciting opportunity to risk being seen in all my glory the only way I could do it was to anchor myself in Healing Sanctuary and Gorgeous Empathy. I was insanely nervous, and I had to deck myself out in talismans and surround myself with the invisible forces of unconditional love and belonging just to get myself on stage. I’ve only watched the video once and that is more than enough. My smallness is eager to point out all the things I did wrong, all the ways I am wrong, but I know how it felt to be up there and I know how triumphant I felt when it was over. So today I am celebrating my courage and the risk I took to be seen in all my glory. I am proud of that woman on the stage and I hope she inspires you to risk being seen in all your glory. Because, dear one, you are glorious. 50 trillion times over, glorious.
