Welcome to Shameless Inspiration! The word shame comes from the Latin word “to cover,” while inspiration literally means “to breathe life into; the drawing in of breath; to be filled with exalting emotion and drive.” Put them together and you have shameless inspiration, which I envision as uncovering my truth with each breath.
My goal every day is to become more open and accepting of myself and others. The mission of Shameless Inspiration is to celebrate pushing the limits of vulnerability as often as we can. I decided to start this blog because I wanted a place to collect and share my experiences and to honor those individuals and ideas that help me along the way. I am constantly finding and creating new ways to lean into discomfort when it arises and to live more joyfully and compassionately. So I push myself into terrifying and challenging environments as often as possible! I have studied jazz, clowning, Shakespeare, Butoh and so much more in an effort to put my shame and fear aside and to learn to live fully and courageously. I would like to share the experiences and inspirations that keep me motivated and I hope that you will share yours too.
If vulnerability is about showing up and letting ourselves be seen, then this blog is about immersing myself in the light, the people I meet there and encouraging you to join us!
