Once you label me you negate me ~ Søren Kierkegaard

Thinking this morning how many people sell themselves out.

People label themselves – not even waiting to be objectified by others.

Loved reading about Lady Gaga in NYT this morning reminded of Timothy Rayner’s Online Authentic.

Here is the article: Blurring Art, Artifice and Pop Culture

We are impacted by our peer group more than we comprehend – echoing Eric Hoffers’s caution:

It would be difficult to exaggerate the degree to which we are influenced by those we influence ~ Eric Hoffer

(a bit more on the power of peer influence: Are People Basically Good or Bad?)

As you introspect and prepare for another week of battle – the battle between authentic and belonging, I wish you more courage to honor your core.If you blog please also keep a private journal.

For your protection,
Jennifer
