The blogosphere has been filled with people posting pictures and/or videos of themselves in their truest form. As in….
no prepared pose.
just the raw, authentic self.
It’s a campaign launched by People of the Second Chance. I thought I’d end the week showing you Dusty Takle sans make-up – early morning.
I told my dad I was going to post this, and I heard a sound come out of his mouth that I cannot even spell. I could even hear in my husband’s voice a “Are you sure you want to expose yourself like that?” And, I really appreciate the, ahem, support, fellas.
Often times, we try to hide behind an image. We are afraid for people to see who we really are. And, I’m not just talking about our physical appearance. I’m talking about how we live our life. But, I have come to appreciate transparency in others. It’s in our transparency….in our realness, that we surrender. We become accountable. And, subsequently, we become more like Him.
So, in celebration of authenticity, I took this picture of myself yesterday morning not long after getting out of bed.
Even though I didn’t brush my teeth, I, at least, smiled. Then, I probably yelled at my kids to hurry up and finish getting dressed for school. In the name of Jesus, of course.
Are you afraid for people to see the real you? Heart and everything?
