So many of us shy away from being fully ourselves in the world. Maybe it’s fear, or feeling it’s inappropriate, but we often keep a lot of ourselves hidden in our private shells. Well, here’s a great counterexample of someone who just put himself out there, and what a response he got!

A friend sent me a link to this video this morning, and I was so impressed that I just had to share it with everyone. This is a flight attendant on Southwest Airlines doing that normal spiel at the start of every flight. You know – the one about seat belts and emergency exits that we all ignore.

This creative soul took a really mundane, boring task and found a way to put his own stamp on it – bringing his own best gifts to bear. Does he look like he cares what people are thinking about him when he launches into his crazy rap routine? He’s just being himself, and everybody loves it. It was an inspiration to me.

So… what do YOU have within that you could risk sharing with the world?
