Jamie lee Curtis is preaching to me right now! Thanks to TiVo I am able to watch what I want when I want.

She is talking about authenticity and not being conformed by the culture of our day. The way sex sells and how she hates fashion and the way it puts people into boxes.

The layers that culture lay on top of people and moving beyond it.

Representing the truth, finding the gold in people is authenticity. Allowing culture to tell you that you have to be young, pretty, with it to be happy…is not authenticity.

I agree, find the truth for you. Create large, don’t copy. Find your own voice!

Tuesdays with Morrie says it this way ‘the culture we have does not make people feel good about themselves. And you have to be strong enough to say if the culture doesn’t work, don’t buy it!’

Show your authentic self…
