The Mask

Since the New Moon was calling me to be more BOLD than ever- vulnerable kinda long post ahead. But 
I must share because who else may be feeling these same feelings.

The mask.

I had a moment where victimhood Courtney came out yesterday.

I volunteered to be the Easter Bunny for the hospital I work for so employees could bring their children to see the Easter Bunny and have their picture taken.

There was a moment where I felt so relieved for this mask.

For anyone that doesn’t know, I was diagnosed with Bells Palsy in 2007 leaving the right side of my face paralyzed. And children (bless their innocence, bluntness and curiosity) will ask me a lot what’s “wrong” with my face. TRIGGER TIME! It hurts. I know they don’t mean anything by it but it still hurts.

I was so thankful that I could engage with children yesterday and not be asked what’s wrong with my face because I was wearing a mask.

Wow.

I feel this is the same with authenticity. How often do I mask my true authentic self everyday just to avoid questions or being embarrassed or ashamed?!

Well. The mask has to come off at some point right?! That’s when the inner work is so necessary. The knowingness that I am ENOUGH and BEAUTIFUL just by being me!! This is why I do the work I do! To help women feel comfortable without the masks.

Don’t be afraid to stand out. Don’t be afraid to be different. Feel your emotions when you’re triggered and then when you’re ready, release them. Know you’re so wonderful, magical and beautiful just the way you are in this very moment.

And for the love of it all, don’t give up.

Thank you for receiving! Massive shifts taking place and deep inner work as I continue my journey of Light Leading!
