A Wild Child’s Social Experiment - STRIP DOWN AND “BE”




My theme for 2024 is Rediscovering My Wild Child - The Journey Back Home.


This means stripping off all my identities, roles, and responsibilities, so I’m left with doing and being nothing…naked…just the real, raw me.  


Who is that?  I’m still rediscovering.  


I was covered with layers, upon layers of stories about the way I was supposed to be, what I was supposed to do, and how I was supposed to create value and contribute -- always needing to prove myself.


I worked non-stop and was so caught up in taking care of everyone else that I forgot who I was at my core…how to love myself, how to play, how to create, how to have fun and be free…spontaneous, adventurous. 

TO COMMEMORATE THIS SIDE OF ME -- MY WILD CHILD 


I am participating in Cupid’s Undie Run THIS Saturday, 10 Feb to honor my 6-year-old self running around the neighborhood in her Wonder Woman underoos feeling like a rockstar.


What better way for me to strip down, take down all the walls and BE Wild Crazy ME AND as a result raise funds to find a cure for neurofibromatosis (NF)and support people like my friend Hayley Brown’s amazing daughter Nora, who swam with us at FLOW Aquatics.


THIS IS WHERE YOU and THE SOCIAL EXPERIMENT come in:

The thought of DOING another fundraiser and having to ask people for money and raise funds was NOT appealing to me.  


HOWEVER, the thought of BEing through a fundraiser was intriguing.  


Could I, just by being me have the money raise itself?  


So my social experiment is:


To purely BE me and invite people to join me in honoring our Wild Child, stripping down to the basics, and partaking in an adventure with Fellow Wild Child(s).


Can we raise $2500 in 6 days just by BEing?  Dunno, but can’t find out until we try. 


If this intrigues you in the slightest…rediscovering who your Wild Child is or just be inspired to strip off your roles and responsibilities for 1 short mile (15 mins -it's for fun...so who knows the actually timing of it) …come and join me as A Fellow Wild Child, whether at home or in person.


BEFORE YOU SAY NO WAY OR I DON’T LIVE CLOSE BY:  


Just dress in what you feel comfortable in and makes you feel like a Rock Star.  Doesn’t really have to be underwear. Register as A Fellow Wild Child under team The Fellow Wild Child(s) - Just "BE"ing. No need for names -- just another "identity" to let go of our attachment to. 


AND IF YOU AREN’T IN BOISE OR DON’T FEEL COMFORTABLE DOING THE RUN --  JOIN US ANYWAY 


Donate as little as $1 as A Fellow Wild Child (use this as your name when donating). Then strip down to your undies (or less) at home while we are doing the run. 


The Wild Child Home Undie Run Challenge
(should you be brave enough to honor your Wild Child during this time):

At 2 pm MT on Sat 10 Feb:


For the 15 mins of the run/walk, stand in front of a mirror, for at least 3 minutes, and look at yourself...despite most likely being uncomfortable doing so. 


Notice the things you love and do not love so much.  


And then, be grateful for ALL of those things, whether you love them or not.  


For the parts allowing you to walk, talk, and breathe. To eat and use your arms, to write, think, and create words, etc.

The more you do this, the more you will start to appreciate and honor all of you...just as you are.


The rest of the time, spend with your Wild Child in silence, stillness, or dancing around in your underwear. Listen to what she/he/they need. You do you!


If you want to take on an even bigger challenge, do this for the next 21 Days!!


UNDERNEATH IT ALL:

#BareIsBeautiful!!  Right down to your core!!


Hope you will come join A Fellow Wild Child and just feel good being FREE!!! If only for a moment.
