A gift that keeps on giving 

Ever since becoming a Ruckusmaker, a part of this incredible group of human beings, each day feels more exciting than the last.

Every day I wake up positively overwhelmed by the amount of information there is to consume; people there are to connect to; blog posts there are to read and write; ideas there are to be thought of; leaps there are to be taken.

Every day I wake up feeling more brave and confident in speaking my truths; making myself vulnerable; taking risks.

I have confidence in knowing I have 79 incredible people to bounce ideas off of; to remind me to forget the fear; to vent to; to pick me up when I fall down; to celebrate with.

speaking to seth2More importantly, I have confidence in knowing that even if those 79 people were to disappear one day (this is actually my current nightmare,) I would still be okay.

I would be my support and pick myself up when I fell down.

How do I know this?

Because through meeting these incredible people, I was able to see myself through their eyes.

I have come to “re-see” myself as the reliable, hard-working woman I am — and I realized, that woman doesn’t give up when the going gets tough.

That woman likes a challenge.

Having the opportunity to step outside and see yourself for who you really are is truly a gift that keeps on giving.

    This is so true. This is something I’ve been struggling a lot with lately – the ability to see myself as other’s do. I think the idea of myself in my head and how I think I come across is completely different from how other’s see me – in good and bad ways. Sometimes I think I’m really nice but people perceive me as shy, unfriendly or standoff-ish. Sometimes I completely doubt myself and others see me as outgoing and capable of achieving so much more. I wish there was a magic mirror or something we could look into to see what other people see.
