am now receptive to the idea that it is time for me to
stop whispering and to start living out loud.
hiding! Stop holding yourself back and playing
yourself down! Stop worrying about how you look
and what people are saying. Stop listening to what
people are saying and trying to find out if they are
whispering about you. Stop waiting for someone to
tell you that you are okay or to make you feel
special. Life is special! It is a special
gift. This is your life! Now take your gift
and live it out in the open! Decide today that you
are going to live out loud!
out loud means having the courage to be exactly who
you are without apology. It means admitting your
mistakes without beating yourself up. It means not
taking who you are and what you have for granted.
Release all shame! Release all guilt! You
cannot live out loud if you are hiding behind what was.
Living out loud means focusing on what is, right now,
and that is you!
live out loud means showing up as your authentic self,
without your makeup or your toupee. It means
acknowledging your shortcomings and celebrating your
strengths. Living out loud means broadcasting your
needs, your likes and your dislikes as they relate to
your fears and frustrations. It means that you let
people know exactly who you are and expect them to be as
thrilled as you are about who you are.
