Authentically Me. What Is That?

Published by kappello on



I have come to realize thanks to the wisdom of a friend that the one thing someone  I feel deeply connected to wants from me is to be authentically me in order for them to come forward.  What is that exactly?  It has been a journey to get that clear. Here it is.

If I were to put it in a nut shell it is this.  I am sweet and sassy, plenty of sassy and spice.  I do not suffer stupid or fools gladly, nor snowflakes nor liberal progressive ideology.  I have no illusions of a world of total love and kumbabya, not wearing rose colored glasses.  I want to dedicate my life to the arts including Italian and sacred arts.  I want to do so with people I feel deeply connected to, including certain other artists that have inspired me in ways they can not even imagine.  I love my my Italian heritage, want to make sure  it is always a part of my life and my arts.  I want to be a major part of that community, including the faith community, which for an Italian/Italian American means Catholic.  I also want to understand the world and faith of Jesus his family, the early apostles.  I am someone who loves kids, animals, gets on quite will with them and loves to be both by herself to create etc…  and also other times with people, enjoying a nice meal and just lots of fun.  I am someone who has very sensitive psychic connection to things and sometimes it is a blessing and other times, ayyy ayyy ayyy.  I wear my heart on my sleeve pretty much, and hate to have to play games, which is why I never liked dating because it seemed to me it was all games and I have little patience for that.  Tell me what you feel, what you want and if I am on the same page great, if not we part ways.  I can give tough love as necessary, even with my mom, love her.  I have no patience for games, none, especially not in the romance department and relationships.  I also little patience for PC, for modern extreme nutty feminists and all that as well.   In addition am someone who wants a life partner etc… who has solid conservative values and worldview.  There you have it.

If anyone wants to know who I am authentically this is, this is me.  You can take it or leave it and I have to afford he same courtesy if I am going to have someone in my life.   If anyone wanted to know who I am, this sums it up.

For over 10 years Ms. Appello passionately taught ESL to students of varying ages. Grounded if her faith and spirituality, Katherine endured a range of issues, including a great deal of pain, which was finally diagnosed to be associated with Fibromyalgia. The essence and the power of music, of words, allow Katherine to overcome these struggles each and every time.
