I have written before about how I have a strange penchant for deliberately looking in to the mirror to study the quality of my eyes in the moment.

The process of becoming authentic has meant leaving the ‘faker’ Cath behind.

But first I have to catch her!

After all these years of doing this I see the veils or armor or grey notes that appear to camouflage my true self.

I want to let myself be seen honestly but this is impossible if people have to work too hard wading through pretense or posing.

Because I have the luxury of time I take this information into my day and finagle around my psyche until some shift occurs and then I check again.

I am after clarity and the raw honey of truth something like this:

    I know- I have a good bit of myself I protect too as I wouldn’t survive otherwise. I think it is possible to keep those places sacred and private and also to allow the full spectrum of life. My reference to ‘fake’ is my own trying very hard to be someone other than myself to get the love I never got… I have to say that simplifying my life HAS helped immensely in the overall clarity department!

    I get it. Thank you. And I will keep on clearing away stuff!
