Radical Self-Expression Moments – Share Your Story

Sometimes, the simplest sentence can have the most profound impact. For example,
“You Deserve to Be Happy.” or “What You Seek Is Seeking You.”
or, in the case of the video at the end of this post…”Share Your Story.”

I feel like there are always 50 reasons why we should be quiet, and not enough reasons we should share how we feel. In this era of dumb ass reality shows and vine videos that leave permanent evidence of a human’s ability to make the worst possible choice, we can still use technology to create communities that heal.

DAY 31 – 31 DAYS OF RADICAL SELF-EXPRESSION

“Perhaps the whole root of our trouble, the human trouble, is that we will sacrifice all the beauty of our lives, will imprison ourselves in totems, taboos, crosses, blood sacrifices, steeples, mosques, races, armies, flags, nations, in order to deny the fact of death, which is the only fact we have.” James Baldwin, Radical Self-Expressionist

DAY 30 – 31 DAYS OF RADICAL SELF-EXPRESSION

Action, not inspiration, is how we find and explore ourselves. We can read great books, study great women, applaud great men, and cry at the memories of those who found their voices, and in some cases lost their lives to share what inspired them to action. But until we take it to heart; until we are willing to test our own wings,…

DAY 29 – 31 DAYS OF RADICAL SELF-EXPRESSION

Inner Work is what will help you to take care of yourself while you take care of everything outside of yourself. Your loved ones, your work, your interests, all of those things carry big rewards and great risks. The rewards are obvious, but the risks require your full attention too. The risks cost you quality of life in the form of happiness and health.

DAY 28 – 31 DAYS OF RADICAL SELF-EXPRESSION

When you finally tell a truth about yourself, out loud, you have to let the full effect of that choice work in your favor. Don’t shy away from opportunities to stand in your commitment.
If it’s a fitness goal, make a bold commitment, not one that is safe and easy to accomplish.
If it’s a professional goal, write out the vision so you can see it all the way to what you can imagine. Let yourself commit.

DAY 26 – 31 DAYS OF RADICAL SELF-EXPRESSION

When we manage the energy of our experiences (past and present) instead of just walking along our life’s path tucking, rolling and reacting to whatever comes our way, without recognition of our ability to harness what we know and express what we love, we become change agents. We become the small instances of change that push limitations and fears aside in favor of the audacity to turn a dream into a goal into a series of tasks. These dream-focused tasks become not just what we believe, but what we are doing to see the world we desire, starting boldly with ourselves.

DAY 24 – 31 DAYS OF RADICAL SELF-EXPRESSION

“The best way to describe Ananda Kiamsha Madelyn Leeke is with a six-word memoir. Yoga + Creativity + Internet Geek = Ananda Leeke. Leeke is a lawyer turned “Jill of many trades:” innerpreneur, author, artist, coach, and yoga teacher. Her mission is “Empowering U2BU through creativity coaching, Reiki, self-care, social media, volunteerism, and yoga.” Since 2005, she has used her blogs to express her mission, advocate for social good, build community, share information, promote her books and events, and market her services. Currently, she serves as a blogger ambassador for AARP, Everywhere Society, Macy’s Heart of Haiti Campaign, and Maiden Nation.”

Day 20 – 31 DAYS OF RADICAL SELF-EXPRESSION

I remind myself consistently that I am a writer. And that I AM is not my doing, but my Creator’s doing, and only I can undo it, most likely by not doing it enough (if that makes any sense to you!). Reality is subjective, so if we shift our reality from what we fear to what we deeply crave, then reality works in our favor.
