Good Morning! I have to be honest, I have been very moved by the loss of Kate Spade.
What about you?
She had the business success people dream of.
She created so much in her life for the world to celebrate, full of colour and influence and playfulness.
All while there was so much more going on inside.
It makes me think of how often we answer the question,
“How are you?” with “I’m fine.”
— when you really aren’t fine.
If you don’t have a broken bone or an illness that someone can see, it is expected you are “fine and will get over it, can’t be that bad.”
What if you are feeling opposite to what you are trying to create?
Trapped by your brand, by the vision you think you need to project… the thinking that you have to be something you aren’t.
We are complex beings!
We change. We feel. We are human.
Without being over-simplistic, a good practice is –
If you catch yourself saying I am fine when you really aren’t,
CHALLENGE yourself to expand your answer and be vulnerable telling the person exactly how you are feeling.
Authentic connection is proven to combat depression.
With lots of love, sincerely!!
