Now that I’m dating … or at least visiting a couple dating apps daily, I have a whole new area of discomfort to enjoy in my life.
Today I shared my dating photos with a new member of my team, Nyx.
In the interest of making myself even more uncomfortable, we recorded it to share with you.
And here’s why: I always want to share things in my ezine for people who DON’T play the harp, as well as for harpists, so as Nyx and I were talking about that, they asked, “Well, what else is going on in your life” and I said “Dating … or not actually dating. But I’d be embarrassed to share that.”
All the more reason to share it. Because if I only share the parts of me I think are good enough, if I only share what I’m not embarrassed about, if I only share what I think LOOKS good … I’m not sharing my full self. I’m hiding essential parts of who I really am.
And I’m committed to not hiding. My motto – from Jerzy Grotowski – is “Don’t do more. Hide less.” The motto of my harp academy is “connection – not perfection.”
So in the spirit of imperfectly hiding less – and the goal of getting comfortable with feeling uncomfortable, I present to you…

What are you scared to share about yourself?
