My friend Lauren Wakefield is one of the bravest people I know. Besides kicking cancer’s booty (in 4 inch blue spiked stilettos no less), she is also just one of those rare people who is not afraid to be 100% herself. And in doing so, she gives other people the permission to exhale and be more of themselves around her. She has started an incredible new series on her blog called “The Real Me” where people let down the perfectly curated social media walls they usually build around themselves, and instead share a little bit of what REAL life looks like right now. I am incredibly honored to be featured on her site today sharing a bit more of the real me, and here are just a few of the things I said:
*Yesterday, I showered and got dressed, did my hair, and put on make up. And then Justin asked me if we had a meeting or something because it was so out of the ordinary. Whoops!
*Lately I’m addicted to Pizza Bites. Y’know, those frozen rectangular tiny pockets of pizza that you used to eat at sleepovers when you were 13? Yea, I eat those as a grown up.
*I have stress dreams in some form or another pretty much every night. My favorite is the “I forgot to go to class all semester and now I have to take the final exam” one.
*Sometimes I check my phone in the morning before both eyes are open. I look like a technology addicted pirate. Arrrrrrrr.
*I buy pretty clothes now because growing up in a leaky broken trailer, all my clothes were from yard sales and smelled like mildew. I dress up now because in so many ways I’m still trying to get away from that trailer.
But those are just a FEW of the things I shared. If you want to see the full list of The Real Me, be sure to head on over to Lauren’s blog today and check it out!
Here’s to REAL!
