Someone told me once, "Heidi, live your life like an open book. It may be the only book someone reads." This is now a value I live by, which is why I allow my life to be so public. It was difficult for me to step into it, being that my my default is to hide or go into shame or guilt. You see in the past I based many of my actions on what I thought people would think about me. Now I'm just inspired to live by my own values to the best of my ability on any given day and to be open and vulnerable. My stealth mission is to inspire and empower you to do the same! You're okay right now, just as you are. I am too.
P.S. As you get to know me you will know I love and use one liners. I collect these from people, things I read and the rooms of 12 step meetings. One liners are great brain pattern interrupts. My one liner used for this: WHAT OTHER PEOLPE THINK OF ME IS NONE OF MY BUSINESS.
