you have a right…

You have a right to be yourself. -Jim Hammond (my dad)

Being yourself for some of the members in this family this week has meant…

Being completely fanatical about Google+, geeking out to all the newness…

Singing really, really loudly without care while listening to Lucy in the Sky on your new Ipod Shuffle…

Being totally moody…

Listening to Harry Potter for hours on end so we can go see the last movie…

Procrastinating like nobody’s business…

Being kinda shocked, yet really proud of a big accomplishment unfolding soon… (sorry to be so cryptic, news to come, I promise!)

Talking way too much in social gatherings…

Being hilariously too honest, and heart-on-your-sleeve kind of open in the corporate world…


What has being yourself looked like this week?

    Haha Oh you know, the usual flaming dysfunction: being bossy and uber-opinionated and completely out of line while trying to save/ fix/ change people. and then crying about what a royal jackass I am. because recovering from epic, ugly surgery just isn’t dramatic enough for me. Apparently. And then being happy it all happened because I think it’s all a part if helping me grow. And then rolling my eyes at myself because really, it doesn’t have to be this hard. But it does.

    being a total harry potter dork and loving it, finding the joy in my everyday life, laughing with my gorgeous neice, letting go of things I have been carrying for too long, and honestly me this week is a little hot and sweaty 😉

    This phrase is so perfect. I feel like little mantras have been finding me all week. Wish I had remembered to write them down!

    This week, being myself means giving in to insomnia, allowing myself to back out of plans so I can store energy for a big adventure, and remembering that the most important person to know who I really am is me.

    This week, being myself has meant …

    … allowing myself to be totally freaked out about taking my first plane trip without my kids.
    … eating lots of chocolate.
    … working on my running playlist, because I’m going to run my first 5K and I need tunes if I’m going to train.
    … playing lots and lots of Angry Birds.
    … letting myself goof off when I “should” be working.
