At a meeting of kickass women enterpreneurs last weekend (Tribal Truth), the keynote speaker (Kim Castle) shared words from Bette Midler:
'cuz you're really a yawn if it goes."
You have my commitment; from now on you shall receive all of me - even the bizarro, blunt, hyper-spaso me. Because why the hell not?
And it would not be a Kate Blog without turning the question to you:
Where in your life are you not sharing all of you? What might keep you from doing so? (Remember... non-judgmental curiosity is key!)
And as we let our light shine we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear,
our presence automatically liberates others"
~ Nelson Mandela
Or maybe when you imagine taking steps toward your dreams, you hear that familiar voice: “What makes you think you’re so special??” I’ll tell ya what – you ARE special. And so is the owner of that voice. And so is everybody else.
We all are special, and in the big scheme of things, we all are meaningless – at the same time. So why not do what makes you happy and tell the voice to take a seat?
One more, short and sweet, from a friend and fellow entrepreneur.

To create your deepest desires, you must be willing to go into scary-land. You must be willing to take a step forward and have no idea how it will work out. (Hint: If you are not feeling fear, you are not playing big enough.)
Where in your life might there be some room to step it up a notch, go a touch closer to your personalized scary-land? How could you experiment with this concept today?
There you have it. These have been my seeds of self-inquiry and curiosity this past week. Hope any or all of it takes root in your psyche this week.
Let us enjoy growing together! I'll be a lush, green, tendril-like expansion with burnt orange flowers. And you?
