In SoulCollage®, a technique used to help you with insights about your card, is to journal or speak from the card using the prompt “I am one who…”
I thought what better way to express authenticity than to let you read my personal journaling from that prompt for this card, which I call The Perfectionist:
SoulCollage® cards are for personal use and SoulCollage® does not advocate infringing on the copyrighted work of others in any way so my card cannot be shared here. But for your imagination, my card shows a woman who has moved a mask away from her face.
I am one who…
Longs to be seen.
I am one who often remains hidden, who you believe others don’t want to see.
But I am true and I am me.
I don’t want to wear the mask, I want to be seen and it be enough.
I am one who is tired of putting on the happy face.
I want to allow the truth and whatever is in that moment.
And yet, I hold the mask, holding onto illusion, scared to let down my guard, to truly allow myself to be seen.
I am trying to embrace imperfection, and yet the mask remains, like a security blanket.
It longs to tell you I have it all together, to not let you see the sad, tired, vulnerable, whatever I may be, imperfect me.
To practice creativity and authenticity yourself, I hope you will join The WholeheARTed Living Course this Tuesday, May 23 as we dive into cultivating Authenticity and letting go of what people think!
