I've been thinking a lot lately about living in the public eye. It's funny because that's not just for celebrities or popular bloggers. We are all living in the public eye. Our lives are on display and others WILL judge them. I've noticed that the more you live transparently, the more you open yourself up, the more judgement, criticism and unwanted opinions you will receive.

In most cases I think it is worth the risk to live the best life you can, standing up for what you believe in, not living in fear of sharing our hearts, our opinions and our lives because of how others might respond. If you live in truth, with integrity you have nothing to fear. Sure you're going to fall down and make mistakes. We all do. It's how you fix the mistake that matters.

Ignore the hate, spread kindness and don't let other people bring you down. As a dear friend told me, "You can please some people all of the time and all people some of the time, but you can't please all people all of the time." Don't apologize for being you.
