I was recently sent this music video by a Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter called Colbie Caillat. This is the lead track "Try" from her album Gypsy Heart Side.
It's such a beautiful example of my mission here with Project Shine.
Before I teach any class, I strip everything back and help my students to see their true self, their true nature and fall in love with that. What we build on after that through new skills to enhance the outer self, is really just to help you reflect your inner self and present yourself for who you want to be. What shines out of us and what people feel about us, is far more beautiful than what people see.
When I watched this, It touched my heart and made me proud to be a woman and proud to be my true self. It encourages you to experience that sense of freedom by taking off something we use everyday to mask ourselves. So "try" it yourself, strip away all the ways you adorn yourself and be proud to be yourself. Celebrate it. Enjoy this clip and let me know your thoughts.
