So why am I sharing all of this with you?
Well, you see - this has been a huge growth period for me and I hope that my learnings can become your learnings too.
Let me explain.
After reflecting on the messaging of each of these events I began to notice a common thread; courage and confidence to be even more uniquely myself.
This recurring narrative of being myself, shining brightly, thinking big according to MY values moved me to take action in a way that I haven’t done before.
As many of you may already know (and for those that don’t), I am an Alopecian which basically just means that when you see me one day I may be a brunette and then the next I may just be blonde… I don’t have hair on my body so naturally, I wear wigs!
But I’ve been feeling more and more challenged by this recently and slowly over the past few years I’ve stopped wearing wigs amongst trusted friends and family. But all of this growth the last few weeks got me thinking - ‘why can’t I simply apply this courage to every part of my life, including at work?’
I’m proud to say that yesterday was the first day I have visited a client and not worn a wig! It felt nerve wracking but it was also a wildly big step forward in stepping more into owning who I am and showing up as her. Needless to say, the day went really well and I’m looking forward to the next meeting!
I wanted to share this story with you to inspire you to take a piece of my courage and apply it to something in your world that has been keeping you back from flourishing. Maybe it doesn’t have anything to do with your appearance but simply speaking up more? Maybe you always dull the sparkle of your ideas before you share them? Whatever it is, can I encourage you today to believe that your uniqueness is your edge and part of your value! Lean into it.
Things are changing up here at the Rebecca Saunders headquarters and this is JUST the beginning.
Thank you for coming along for the ride.
