Quirky is the new Sexy

July 16, 2010


Hi everyone,
I am honored to announce that I’ll be interviewed by the fabulous Caroline Donahue’s podcast next Tuesday. Caroline Donahue, founder of Remabulous Coaching, interviews original and fabulous Business owners to talk about the Quirk Behind the Work and how they discovered success through embracing who they really are. What an awesome thing to be recognized for? I used to think that quirks were bad, negative things that would make me strange and an unaccepted. I have spent a lot of time trying to keep them quiet, especially to those I don’t know. Who would have known that one day my eccentric characteristics would get me here? Want to know any of my other quirks? I drive with one leg bent and one straight. I like dressing up my dog in ridiculous outfits just to take pictures of him, I also take pictures of my feet everywhere, I love puns, even the bad ones, and I can’t go more than two days without yoga.

Did you know that quirks are sexy?

Your quirks are what define you and make you special. Some may be good and some may be a bit strange and that is great. If we were all normal, that wouldn’t be fun. Sometimes it’s the very thing that makes us a little odd that frees us and opens doors for creativity and growth. Are there any quirky parts of you that you’ve been hiding? Have you ever wanted to say or do something because you know it will feel good and and your fear stops you? How about taking one of those out for a spin? Try ‘flaunting’ something small at first to get started. Who knows who may see you and think that it’s pretty hot. The most appealing thing we can do on this planet is be 100% ourselves. Then we have the best chance of welcoming in the right situations into our lives. What’s the worst that can happen? A little embarrassment. I can’t think of one person who hasn’t been there before.

“Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.”

Get Your Smooth On.” For more on Jenny, go to her site http://www.jennyonthepage.com.

Now that summer is officially here, and it’s almost July 4, I think about what this holiday brings up for me. Usually, before any day like this, I spend time trying to be low key and not get caught up in the commotion. I am “chill yoga girl.” Hello! I measure this against the big pool party I’ll be attending in Malibu this Sunday and my immediate reaction is to feel conflicted, like I want to hold back from the fun. An incident that happened this week inspired me to look at this in a different way. A few nights ago, my friend Gordon invited myself and a few girlfriends to dress up like Hollywood party girls for a music video he is making and drive around LA in a limo. We wore mini skirts, fishnets, drank bottles of booze, and bounced around in a limo listening to nasty hip-hop. For the sake of the project, I stepped up to it without a thought. And we had a blast. This was hands down one of the most fun nights I have had…and sooo out of character. At the end of it all, exhausted from laughing and dancing, I reflected on the joy and exhilaration in my body and how if circumstances were different, I probably wouldn’t have been dressing or acting like that. It was from stepping out of my comfort zone and allowing a new side of me to play, that I acquired a high that lasted for days. I vow to bring this mindset into this holiday weekend, wear something unusual and keep riding out this sense of play.
Did you know that liberation is something you can achieve any day by overcoming the tiniest of fears and limiting beliefs?
Is there a perception of yourself that is keeping you from doing what you want, being more fully who you are, or simply enjoying what a new side of you that hasn’t had a chance to come out? If this is the case for you, as it is for most of us each, how about setting one of those things into the fire and saying ‘peace out’ to it this holiday?I invite you to try something new, step into a different side of you. Be proud of who you are with one less piece of mind garbage. If you’re up for it, how about stepping into that bikini you love even if it makes you feel a little scared. After all, getting past fears is the quickest way to feel free!
Happy Fourth of July everybody. I wish you a safe and joyous holiday,
Sarah
