Our resources are finite

Keri Smith had a thought provoking post yesterday about "what living out loud really means."

I expect that it means something a little bit different for each of us. At the heart of it, however, there is the commonality that we all have limited resources. Limited time and energy.

Of what opportunities do we deprive ourselves, if we waste those precious resources on things over which we have no control? Keri listed some fine examples: wanting to be liked, wanting to project the image of perfection, being "nice" for the sake of being nice, wanting to be in control and trying to live up to perceived expectations.

What is the worst that could happen if we shed our carefully crafted social masks? What is the best?

Just for today....
