Welcome to our blog: Breaking The Shell!
Updated: Jun 7
Welcome to Breaking the Shell with Jesse + Yoki! We thank you for joining us on this journey to find and appreciate our true selves. It is our pleasure and our sincerest desire that you will find something here that helps you uncover, rediscover and/or grow your gifts so that you can share them with the rest of us.
In a world that often pressures us to conform and fit into societal norms, it takes courage to break free from the shell and embrace our authentic selves. It's like taking the first bite of the taco: the shell breaks and the goodness in the middle is released. We too must shed the expectations and masks that hold us back, releasing the goodness inside each of us. In this blog, we will explore the concept of being your authentic self and how it can lead to personal growth, fulfillment, and genuine connections with others.
Have you ever noticed that animals don't care at all about fitting into a stereotype or trying to improve or impress others? There's no pressure to conform and fit in like there is in the world of humans. It brings to mind a quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson, “Birds sing after a storm; why shouldn't people feel as free to delight in whatever sunlight remains to them?” We all want to be happy and experience joy, yet often this is something we feel pressured not to express.
Over the months and years ahead, we will spend time sharing wisdom, stories resources on why you should do this, how to do this, who has done it well, and many outcomes from having done so. We just wanna add value.
We are glad you're here!
Jesse + Yoki
