Reconnecting with Your Authentic Self

Reconnecting with Your Authentic Self

“Most people believe vulnerability is weakness. But really vulnerability is Courage. We must ask ourselves...are we willing to show up and be seen?” Brené Brown

My grandmother Clara was fearless. She marched to the beat of her own drum and she never worried about what others thought of her. To say that Clara was colorful and unique would be an understatement. She boldly dared to be herself every moment of every day and even those who had trouble understanding her had to admit she had a flare all her own. She was an extraordinary woman who loved adventure. She traveled the countryside all by herself for many years, taking odd jobs here and there, staying on just long enough to make enough money for her next big adventure. When in her later years, she finally decided to settle on a single location, she decided on an isolated area of the Mogollon Rim of Arizona, with nothing around her for miles save cactus and coyotes. She was no sissy.
