Oh yippie! Another day, another invitation to be the best version of ourselves! Arghhh!!!

Let’s think about that for a minute. Is that like sprinkling sparkle dust all over ourselves so we can shine better? Is it like putting on a mask that covers our faces so that we feel more beautiful and/or desirable? Is it like hiding behind a door to be opened only by someone with the best “schmooze” imploring us to join his/her homogenous group because “they” are the rightful power brokers of people? Whatever it is, a version is a lie! A version is simply a distortion or a turning and twisting of the truth into sometime untrue.

And in retrospect, I cannot figure out why any of us ever choose to do that. Is it because we have forgotten who we truly are or because we’ve been listening too long to the world tell us who and what we should be? If so where is the body of judges that determines that, what are their credentials and qualifications to make those decisions for us, and more importantly who put them in charge???

To be continued…

  1. Yep…a “version” being passed off a truth…you are very wise in your delivery here Natalie–
    because that’s what this is really all about…versions…versions of the best you you can be…
    but it is a broken world offering these versions….like the flavor of the month….as each version will eventually give way to a different and new version….for there is only One true constant that has not nor will not change…waiting for part 2 🙂
