The Question That Started It All

Who Am I?  That’s the one question that plagues most of us, all of our lives.

There are many things that can contribute to the answer.  Could it be your name, your appearance, or your job?  Is it what rung you hold on the social ladder or how large or small your bank account is?  What about your age, where you grew up, or maybe even your zodiac sign? When someone asks who you are, that’s the information you probably give.  Why? 

Okay, those are the things that most people expect to hear when they ask “the question” WHO ARE YOU?  or,  pose “the statement” TELL ME ABOUT YOURSELF.  I can hear it now… “Hi, my name is Holly, I’m 28, was born in Ohio but moved to L.A. last year, I work at a dental office, have a cat named Hollywood, blah, blah, blah….”

Have we all be trained to put who we are into such a neat little who am I box?!?!   Think about it, how many people really, honestly know the REAL you? Do you even know the REAL you? 

The Chameleon’s Backbone is about discovering who we are, our true selves, what lies beneath it all, our cores.  Everything else around us can change – our looks, our environments, our social circumstances, and even important stuff like our family structure and health.  Like chameleons, we adapt, we adjust, we can even go with the flow.  But, our BACKBONES, that solid block of who am I will stay the same…always.  This site will document the journey of discovering my own BACKBONE and learning how flexible it is (or isn’t), where it is weak, strong, and even misaligned, and how it carries me through life.  Along the way you will learn how to understand and appreciate your own backbone, which is exceptional and unique.

And…in case you were wondering…yes, chameleons really do have backbones.
