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,
