Too: AKA, The Goldilocks Excuse

Too big.

Too small.

Too much.

Too little.

Too long.

Too short.

We all love to use the Goldilocks excuse to find flaws in ourselves, and each other. You name it, she/he/it is too ______.  Apparently, we want ‘just right’ – whatever that means.  We love to try and talk people out of who they really are at times.  Why?

As I research my new book, one of my interviewees said that he’s 100% transparent, because he HAS to be transparent about who he is…it’s not like he can hide any portion of who he is, because he’s in the public sphere and all his jobs are public.  Why hide it?

I’m here to tell you that you are just right, even if you are too _____. You are who and what you are.  Embrace it. Own it. Be it. Because you ARE it…and there’s nothing wrong with that.

After all, everyone else is taken!
