That picture there?*  Hello, unmuted world!

Wouldn’t it be great to wake up every morning feeling like what I think this picture conveys: a brilliant blue sky with dazzling sunlight inviting you to go down that road towards all of the endless possibilities that MUST be just down there around the corner.  Plans to do what you want to do, how you want to do them, on your terms.

I used to get so bogged down living life on other people’s terms–doing, saying, wearing, thinking, and working on what I thought was expected of me from other people.  I got so caught up in being that person for everyone else that I was too tired to be the person I was put here to be.  Enter: the unmuting of Dorian.  Once I let go of other people’s expectations of myself which were founded on who knows what and started living and being my true self….Wow, talk about a breath of fresh air!

My blog includes snippets of my life.  The first post tells how my personal unmuting began.  The rest are my everyday happenings.  They are spit-your-coffee-out funny, sad, or OMG-worthy.  They are about me, someone I know, or something I heard or read about that I think is worth sharing.  They will make you think I have either a genius IQ or that I’ve completely lost my mind.  My hope is that they all make you think something, ANYthing, and that, if you too want to live an unmuted life, they get you headed in the right direction.

Ready to unmute?

Maybe you’re ready to turn up your volume but not sure how to start.  Or maybe you’ve been unmuted for a while and are looking for a fresh perspective.  Either way, you are in the right place.  Welcome!
