Scandalous Redefined… My Way!

Happy Friday!

For years, my mum has told me, “You are scandalous” in reference to my sometimes “shocking” directness and expression of self. At first, I was a little hurt and took it negatively. And I would immediately go into defense mode. But with time, understanding and self-acceptance, I have come to love this word and I believe it speaks to the truest part of who I am.

the word scandalous redefined: putting yourself out there with great daring.

I’ve embraced it so much so that my word for this year is (drum roll, please): SCANDALOUS. But I’ve redefined it. (Yes, you can redefine a word.)

I am scandalous! And that’s a good thing in my book.

So this year no more hiding my “light under a bushel.” I am coming out scandalously!

Call to Action: Can you feel me on this? Are you struggling with letting your scandalous self shine? Or are you already scandalous? Please share your stories below. I’d love hear them.

  1. I relate Janine! I have a reputation to be unorthodox. And I don’t care. It’s my strength. I love being a mystery and have a few surprising tricks to pull out of the hat (or at least give the impression that I do hahaha) 🙂

    1. Hi, Rudiano. I am happy to meet an “unorthodox” from the other side of the pond. I live in the U.S. of A., as you put it. And yes, being unorthodox or “scandalous” is good. Think about it: Aren’t the best, most memorable shows and books about offbeat characters? So let’s continue to embrace our strength and our blessing.
