Is this really me?

Do you ever do something or write something or have a meeting about a project and think ‘is this really me?’.

There are lots of things you CAN do but not necessarily all of them ARE you.

When you are really being you, you are being brilliant.

And you are being brilliant with ease and grace and fun.
