Unleashing the Dragon! 🐉 The Manicorn lives! 🦄 💪🏼
The evolution of the manbun is here and it is the manbraid! 😛
This is also an ode to continuing to embrace my FEAR of creatively expressing in the world online and sharing that journey of authentic creative expression publicly. This time from my fashion/style/image side of myself.
Also, I am giving myself permission to have FUN doing this and act like the magical man-child that I am and have always been! So feel free to laugh at me — or with me as I laugh at myself! 😀
My goal in sharing is to be of service as a catalyst for YOU to do the thing (or things) that YOU have always wanted to do but were too afraid to do [see here for more on this journey].
I am still scared as hell & full fear, but what I am learning is that often our FEARS are showing us what we most need to do in order to truly feel ALIVE & live the life we’ve always dreamed of.
SPECIAL NOTE: I basically have little to no experience filming, blogging, vlogging, writing, etc. I did this all by myself — no film crew, no experience, no training, etc. I am learning all of this on the spot in real life by DOING and gaining INCREMENTAL IMPROVEMENT even when I fail miserably. You can never truly fail if you learn something from the experience.
You may miss your goal, but like Bruce Lee said:
“A goal is not always meant to be hit, it often serves simply as something to aim at.”
I’m discovering my path in the world by aiming at goals, missing them, refining & retooling, setting new goals, and learning to love the process & journey and not worry so much about some final destination that may not have any real meaning to me anymore when I arrive. This is living in the moment while maintaining integrity (mind-heart-action alignment).
Mind-heart-action alignment is something that evolves as we grow, learn, and experience life. It is a living/changing/transforming thing just like our life. Be open to and aware of your own heart & meaning evolution.
My vision is to be a TRANSFORMATION ARTIST & LEADER and sharing this authentic journey full of messiness, mistakes, mishaps, stutters, “ums” & “ahs”, repeating myself, imperfections, etc. is my way of living that possibility while aiming at lots of goals and also being of service to mankind in a way that has true heart & meaning to me in a deeply personal & profound way.
Give yourself the gift of just learning by doing and being okay with looking like a fool as your traverse your road to mastery. Have fun with your fears! Laugh at yourself and take those baby steps (or leaps of faith) to a truly authentic life of your own design.
