June is the month, every year, for the last 50 years that we celebrate Pride. It is conscious, intentional time to teach tolerance, acceptance and equality throughout the world! Pride is all about love, friendship and creating a safe space for all, no matter how you identify. So this year in the spirit of Pride, I would love to have you join me and celebrate you! What do I have to celebrate, you may be thinking? Well you can choose what you want but I can think of a few things – you, your life journey and experiences, your falldown get back up stories, your gifts, talents, your struggles & challenges, your uniqueness in this world. It’s entirely up to you! I think this month is defintely a time for us all to come out of our “personal closet” and celebrate the authentic you, who you truly are, not who you think you should be.
Does the world see me as I am?
For a moment, lets be honest.I invite you to reflect on how much in life you fully express your true self? Whether that be in language, beliefs, action, dress, if you were being brutally honest, would you admit how much time you spend hiding, playing small or holding back? The times we think I’d better not do that or say that as they might not like me or accept me. It is in our human nature to want to belong but there is a difference between belonging and trying to fit in.
Maybe you don’t truly express yourself more because of expectations: family, society, cultural, religious, even expectations of yourself.
Whatever it might be, I invite you to let this month be your Pride celebration month too. A time for you to share with the world who you truly are, to practise expressing and showing up as your authentic self, in celebration of your amazing uniqueness.
To help may I suggest a few simple questions to ponder, firstly for yourself and then to share with those you choose
What is it time for me to celebrate?
What is unique about me?
What am I a stand for?
