When I worked in a corporation for 10+ years, I wore power suits, stilettos, a full face of makeup and played the “part” of the corporate “busy-ness” woman. That’s right – break the word “business” down and that’s what you get. BUSY.
Long days, long commutes, long meetings, long ass days, long periods-without pay-rises, and even longer strips of bureaucratic red tape everywhere insight.
I had to act a certain way in front of directors, talk a certain way at meetings, conduct myself in a certain way around different types of people.
How did this feel after 10 years? That I was acting every single day. I was wearing a costume. I was conditioning myself to be liked, promoted and approved by the corporate society.
No more putting my personality into approvable boxes. I get to be me, every single moment of the day.
Here’s to saying NO to compartmentalising YOU.
Here’s to saying NO to pretending everyday to be something you’re not.
Here’s to showing up being YOU. Unapologetic. Authentic. And full of life.
Have you crossed into a life of freedom? How does it feel for you?
