Get Naked and Be You

The other day, I was watching an episode of one my favorite shows in which one of the main characters is a clothing designer who is trying to start up a romance with a bartender.  She puts on this huge facade, shows him all of the fancy and expensive things she owns and all of the things she's able to do.  When the bartender finally got tired of the charade, he stopped her and says, "I could care less about your condo in NY, your clothing line or your new store.  I want to know the real you.  What's under the clothes, Brooke?"

So I find myself asking you all the same question.   At the end of the day when you get home from work/school/other daily routines, and you shed your clothes, what's left? What do you see?  Are you as you portray yourself to be on a day to day basis or are you an entirely different character?

Does your personality change daily? Do you become someone different when you wear different outfits?  Can you really say you are ALWAYS you regardless of the day, situation, environment?  Just who are you really?  Are you truly sharing the most meaningful element that makes you, YOU, with everyone around you or do you save that element for those you consider special?

I ask you all to get naked and take a good look at yourself in the mirror and ask yourself what it is you truly see.  When you finally find those things that make up the true you... try to apply them to every day life.  Believe it or not, it's a challenge.  And it's one you may actually be thankful for.

What's underneath your clothes?

  2. I am all about being naked. Being who I am. Recently, however, I find that as a society we are so accustomed to viewing façades that we are uncomfortable with reality.

    I am interviewing for jobs. I was advised to give them what they want. Talk the game. Say what they want to hear. The biggest problem is that I have no clue what they want to here. I am pretty sure they are not interested in my opinions/beliefs/ideas.

    This morning I focused as much as possible on what I think would be textbook/seminar answers. The questions were on the importance of listening and dealing with belligerent clients. That worked until they asked where would my co-workers have difficulty with me. Well, that's a whole mouthful. Since I live outside of the status quo, anybody feeling stuck tends to get lost in their distress. And to tag me with their issues.
    That was not my answer. (This time.)

    Instead, I said I am very enthusiastic about issues important to me - chia seeds or recycling. And that I have zero tolerance for rumor, gossip, and innuendo. That means I am not a water cooler girl and will not smile while people are running their, um, distress. I keep myself to myself.

    I live my life honestly. I haven't come all this way to spend my days faking who I am. I am all that, whether they hire me or not.

    Rock out!!!...

    1. I LOVE this comment! I completely agree and love the fact that you were entirely "naked" with your answer! If that place doesn't hire you, it just means they're beneath you and you're meant for something much better! Thanks so much for this awesome comment! Made my day :)
