Blog Post # 304 – Our Brave Face

My brave face.

Will I let you see the real me?

Behind my mask.

Will I let you in?

You think you know me.

It is only a part.

The happy face that I share online.

The one where everything is fine.

Everything is okay.

I allow you glimpses every now and then.

But my mask is functional.

Effective.

A hard exterior designed to keep you out.

To hide my vulnerability.

What if we put down the mask?

Shared a lot more of ourselves.

It is certainly okay to hold some things back.

But what do we have to lose in revealing a bit more.

Expressing ourselves.

Revealing our art.

Speaking our truth.

For today, let us decide to be more honest.

More real.

More open.

And see where this takes us today.
