Return of the Roar

Return of the Roar

Coach E here:

I offer our most primal fear is we will not be enough and ultimately won’t be loved. We create moats around our vulnerability and true selves so we can stay “safe.” 

The irony is we achieve great things in our quest to “measure up” and be loved, yet often fail to get what we all crave the most, deep relationships and soulful connection.

Today I offer you the roar: A return to the intimacy and quality of relationship that comes when we share who we really are without social masks or fear. Our art, vulnerability, shame, messiness, as well as our triumphs.

This is not easy. It requires radical bravery, inspired action and a willingness to be vulnerable. 

I invite you to return to your roar and give it away today; your love, art and true self. The upside is unlimited and there is no downside because, as Dr. Seuss once said, “Be who you are. Because those who matter don’t mind, and those that mind don’t matter.”

      Hey Mary!

      Wonderful question/thought. What do YOU think? What are ways to stand in your truth while also fostering connection? What could that look like?
