Get in the Nude.
Here’s why being nude is super beneficial:
When I first started my blog, I knew that I wanted to write posts that were very transparent. I did not want to be another inspirational blogger who gives advice as if she’s some kind of perfect life coach who has it all together. I wanted my readers to know that I am not perfect and I definitely don’t have the answers to everything. My blog in a nutshell: “here’s my story and here’s what I am learning along the way.”
It’s important for me to open up about a lot of things that I battle with because I believe that it can help someone else.
We live in a world where it seems that people are extremely focused on having a perfect image. I’ve personally gone through this phase and I found it to be exhausting. The older I get, the more I realize that being real and admitting that I don’t have it all together is much more of a relief than it is for me to conceal who I really am.
So, I think it can be very beneficial to live in the nude (haha); stripped of all masks, all barriers, everything that hides who we really are. You never know how much your story can help the next person. I am encouraged by other’s who share what they’ve gone through. They don’t even have to go into detail, but just the overall lesson they share is enough for me to feel inspired.
I do believe in maintaining a sense of privacy in life (everyone doesn’t need to know all of your business, haha), but I also believe that some transparency is needed for personal healing and growth. I’m no longer afraid of living in my truth; it’s my testimony. My prayer is that it reaches the people who need it the most.
