After a lovely late Friday afternoon conversation with my intuitive and charismatic friend Sonya, I felt inspired and creative. You see, our chat roamed between the realms of emotion and practicality. Our words played ping-pong with each other, harnessing energies within me that had seemingly gone dormant due to recent life circumstances. However, they’re awake now.
Without coming across as too preachy, I have to say with total truthfulness and honesty that we all wear masks in our every day lives, and it’s time they came off. We are only deceiving our authenticity, subverting its own evolution in lieu of the acquisition of tangible, materialistic things that are in and of themselves worthless. By donning the mask, we are succumbing to societal expectations of long-used roles and labels. If we continue to ornately costume our real identities with what we think others want to see us as, then our lives will undoubtedly be un-fulfilling on many levels.
That is why I’m starting something called the “I Feel” Project (#IFeel”). I want to be honest to myself, and along the way to this self-awareness and understanding of who I really am, I would love for others to partake and express themselves honestly and truly.
What I’m proposing is this. Once every day, doesn’t matter what time, I’m going to post a short Tweet, or a Facebook message, or a short blog post about how I FEEL at that moment. For 30 days, I’ll be posting a few simple words on how I feel. At the end of these 30 days I will be able to reflect on this short period of time in my life to recognize and triggers or trends, or revealing information on how I can attain my personal truth.
So join me on this little project on finding more about the amazing, unique, beautiful person that you are. #IFeel. Let’s kick off those masks and start showing the face that we have hidden under layers of emotion, tumult, and heartbreak. It’s time to show our beauty.
So today, I want to say “I Feel Lucky”.
