Are you rockin’ your shit?! like really really?!

OK, so I have a confession…

I LOVE all this Harlem Shake madness!!

Here’s one of my faves:

One person rocking their own little dance while a crowd could care less… baseline drops and ALL HELL BREAKS LOOSE!!!

Everyone getting down in general CRAZINESS!!

gimmespace!

YEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!

gimmespace!

I see it as representation of how our inner world should look.

When you come up with something you want to do in your life, something that would require you to muster up all your courage to JUST GO FOR IT… are you there for you?

Like really really there?

gimmespace!

Do you sit in the audience, ignoring this part of you that wants to break out and BE THEIR WEIRD SELF?

OR…

Do you SUPPORT YOURSELF with every cell in your body to just ROCK THAT SHIZZ?! Get dressed up in all your various facets of awesomeness and lose your shit in the best way possible?! YOUR GLASS CEILING SHATTERED INTO A MILLION LITTLE BITS !!!!!

OR…

Are you looking at that piece of yourself that wants to break out with lots of eye rolling and disgust – getting super annoyed with their shenanigans?

Well, it’s time to support yourself.

Because if you want people to rally around you in the outside world… if you have a thing you wanna make happen… you gotta get down with you, first.

You have the world’s blessing: Accept yourself. Support yourself. ROCK THE EFF OUT WITH YOURSELF!!!

gimmespace!

(ps – And while you’re at it, rock the eff out with other people too. It’s quite contagious!)

Alter egos.

This concept of an alter ego has been appearing in my travels.

First it appeared in a thread on a workshop forum. One of the wonderful ladies in the workshop shared her alter ego. She’s a talented poet and I absolutely LOVED her name. (Maybe she’ll grace us with her presence in the comments)

Then it appeared again in my horoscope for the week:

“Modest and chic, you tend towards the understated, but this full moon prods you out of your shell. Let your secret wild side emerge in the spirit of legendary Capricorn David Bowie and his alter ego Ziggy Stardust. Embrace the summer’s neon pink trend and rock it like it was your sign’s signature neutral hue.”

I’ve always been a little turned off by the idea of the alter ego. It seemed like people trying to be something they’re not. And that felt fake.

I hate fake.

But the more I think about, the more I realize that if you it feels good and right, then it’s not fake. It’s a real part of us.

We tend to use all the stuff we’ve experienced to make up the person we’re being. A lot of it we picked up when we were kids and have gotten so used to it, it’s become the normal us. That me has some pretty solid ideas of what I can and can’t do. What I am and am not. Sometimes those are limitations, sometimes they’re pieces of my personality that I like.

But being someone other than who I normally am is kind of scary. It would be so much easier if someone came along and was all “I give you permission. Let’s get CRAZY!”

Having an alter ego seems like that person – a short cut to funneling out a hidden part of me that doesn’t include any of my self-imposed bullshit. It sounds awesome and I’m intrigued.

I’m summoning you, alter ego… who are you? Let’s hang out.

Do you have an alter ego? Tell me who she (or he) is and how you two met!
