Show Your True Colors

These are my magic overalls. When I wear them, I'm reminded of my wildly creative side. I move with a confident rhythm, think abstractly, feel like the woman I am inside. When I need to get my groove back, I wear these overalls. What do you do to get your groove back, to get in touch with who you are deep inside your core? How do you show your true colors to yourself and/or to the world? 

My true colors are speaking strongly now because I'm going through a transition process that's bringing up feelings about who I am and what's important to me. Keith (my husband) and I made the bold decision to quit our jobs and ride our motorcycles from Canada to the tip of South America. (I'll share more about how we arrived at this choice in another post.)

I've been vacillating between, "Holy moly! I'm so excited to go I want to take off right now!" to "Holy crap! How am I going to get all the work done at work and at home to get ready to go?" The result has been a pretty heavy load of stress, mixed with the exhilaration of starting a new adventure in life, and another thing that's tough to describe but I'm going to give it a go. 

I feel like, if I'm finally traveling at the age of 51 which I have wanted to do since I was 17, what else have I really wanted to do but haven't done, yet? My most recent answer was, "Red. I've always wanted to be a red head." I researched becoming a red head online and the one thing that stuck with me is, "do not do this at home, go to a professional." Thanks to Jessica at Fine Line Hair Design, I am now a red head and TOTALLY love it. There's magic in being who you truly want to be.

How will I express my true colors next? I don't know but I know I love this trend. How about you? What have you always wanted to do but haven't done, yet?

Adventurously yours,

Jalene
