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…
