Telling my story one day at a time.

DSC00203

Hi, my name is Lesley and my goal is to live my life, authentically me.

I always thought I did this, however after being diagnosed with stage 4 metastatic breast cancer, and kicking the social media frenzy, I realized that I had no idea who “authentic Lesley” was. I lost her in the midst of likes, comments, ministry, service, doing, doing, doing.

It has been a journey of re-creation and discovery.

It has been freeing, stretching, liberating and sometimes downright painful.

I have had several awakenings and spiritual shifts along the way.

As I have been unearthing my authentic self, I have found my clarity has come through engagement. And things that I thought I was passionate about, I am not. I did it, because unconsciously I thought that was what I was supposed (conditioned) to do.

I am not Dandelion Wishes (my non profit)

I am not Live Brave, Not Broken (a good idea)

I am not a denomination or belief system.

I am Lesley Kailani Glenn, made in the image of God, put here for a specific purpose that no one else mirrors.

One of the most significant things I lost along the way was documenting and telling the stories of my family. Instead I thought it was more important to tell other peoples stories.

Who will tell my stories when I am gone, if I don’t? I believe this to be one of the most significant things I leave for my children, for they are the only legacy that matters.

In the past few months I have picked up things that I put on the shelf years ago, and engaging with them has brought me much clarity into who I really am. Living my authentic self.

This blog has been renamed to “Living Authentically Lesley.”

I am going to tell my story, through words, art and all things creative, because that is what makes my spirit soar.

For me. For my kids.

And along the way, I hope to inspire you to tell your stories.

Because stories matter.

In peace and grace,

  3. Lesley, thank you for this. I saw you were not on Facebook anymore and wondered what happened and how you are. Now I see! What a true inspiration! As my 50th birthday is fast approaching, I have been having the same thoughts in my mind about living authentically me, and eliminating the things I’m doing out of obligation, not joy. Would still love to connect sometime. Warmly, Melanie
