being authentic – in person

Screen shot 2014-06-26 at 4.16.28 PMWhen I was at Curve Camp, I had one of the most interesting conversations. Outside at a picnic table. With Mara Glatzel and Dyana Valentine.

Yes. Seriously. I would say that I’m pinching myself, but the ease of it all just made it seem so normal.

We sat outside in the rockin’ Nashville humidity and talked about vulnerability. And I talked about how I’m not consistent.

I’m pretty open here. I’m very open with my friends that I’ve met online.

But in person?

Nope.

I grew up in a tiny town. As in 1200 people. One flashing stoplight. That’s it. I moved to Louisville and then settled in Lexington. I never went more than three hours from home. But I still get slack – fun-loving, but still slack – from some of my family members.

“What in the world is this?”

“Avocado.”

“You guys go to the big city and bring THIS home to eat?!?” (And then proceeds to eat it all.)

I am used to good natured ribbing, though. That’s how my family shows interest.

So I really don’t know what I’m afraid of.

But I’m trying.

I have been talking to my family about yoga school. (I even brought up yoga to my blind eastern Kentucky

grandmother.)

I’m trying to make my in-person authenticity match my on-line authenticity.

If you know me in person, feel free to encourage me.
