PLEASE ALLOW ME TO (RE)INTRODUCE MYSELF..
Are you singing Sympathy for the Devil now too?

It’s been a while since I’ve introduced myself and some of you may not know much about me. I thought it might be a good idea to start a new year with a re-introduction, to put a face and a personality to my social accounts. They are, after all, meant to be social. And, as social creatures, we have a need to see and be seen by one another. Thinking further…I’ve changed so much over the past few years, it seems as prudent to introduce myself to people I’ve known since childhood as it is to do so with those of you I’ve just now met.
Aren’t we all changing all the time?
It's the one and only constant.
Yet we tend to interact with one another as though nothing has changed, as though we’re still old versions of ourselves. Particularly with the people most familiar to us. We get stuck in old scripts, viewed through old lenses, filtered through outdated internalized beliefs. What if we made it a habit to regularly update the scripts in our own minds and the minds of the people with whom we interact?
Doesn’t any good operating system require regular updates to function optimally?
Either way…whether you know me (or you think you know me) or you don’t…
Hi! I’m Lara.
