Outing myself today on the blog as super video scared and self prescribing a #videochallenge
I started writing this blog primarily to share my voice. But I’ve realized voice means a lot more than the written word. For as long as I can remember (and I know I’m not alone in this), I have hated the sound of my speaking voice. It’s high-pitched, soft, strange. I cringe when I hear myself recorded. Who is that person? Sure I’m worried about how I look, but mostly, it’s that other part, the voice. I know there are bigger problems in the world. And this one is pretty self involved. But it's also bigger that that too. How many people feel shame about their voice? It's a lot like body shame. It holds us back. It keeps us from speaking up and sharing ourselves with the world.
To continue this experiment of being courageous (or generally saying f**k it), being real, and putting my voice into the world, I'm giving videos a try. 30 days starting today. I’ll post a mini video each day on stories. I’ll share my current adventure in France or whatever feels right for the day. No promises on quality. But I’m just showing up anyway.
