Be Inspired and Always Laugh!

An email I received yesterday from a brilliant creative I've been working with these past few months was signed "be inspired and always laugh".

This affected me in 3 ways:

1. I smiled.
2. I was encouraged to be inspired and always laugh!
3. I was reminded to always stay true to myself! For many years I tried formatting emails in the "right way" (I even went so far as to seek a PR Professional for guidance when writing one particularly important email)... but more and more I'm re-learning how great it is to just be me! Not only is it refreshingly honest, it often brings an unexpected candidness to the relationship that enables the other person to lower their defenses, opening the floodgates for beautiful authentic communication.

I LOVE the emails I receive from this particular lady... but that doesn't mean I'm going to start writing my emails like her. I'm going to write my emails like me. And in that, hopefully I will encourage others to smile, be inspired, and stay true to themselves!
