Be Authentic!



Hello Friends, Happy Monday! 
If September was all about investing in yourself, October should be about being Authentic. Because how can you invest in yourself if you don't know who your true self is. These two words are like peanut butter and jelly they are equally delicious separately but together they are extraordinary and life changing! Authenticity is a concept that comes over a period of time, it takes time develop and accept. Authenticity is defined as something is genuine, original, the quality of being real. Its something that is inside of you that cannot be copied because you are who you are. Its so easy to go with the crowds and conform with the general standards of the world. However you will get lost in the sauce and even though you tried to gain something you gain nothing at all. 

What I have realized over the years is that Authenticity being originally you is where you will find yourself, its where you gain the confidence and self acceptance it where you find that reason/purpose for your life and there for your wildest dreams realized. I really like this quote below by Brene Brown who went viral for her TED talk about vulnerability says, " Authenticity is a collection of choices that we have to make everyday. It about the choice to show up and be real. the choice to let our true selves be seen." It is a decision that you make. Its the kind of decision that causes you to take that leap of faith into the unknown discovery point of finding self and choosing you. This quote below also reminds me of the song, "I choose" by India Arie, she sings, "I choose to be the best that I can be, I choose to be authentic in everything I do!" Authenticity begins with a decision and ends with self acceptance and ultimately finding the purposes we all have here. I will also be asking and answering these two questions and see where it leads me. When digging for answers there are always treasures to be found. Lets see what October discovers. 

What is Authenticity? 

How can I be authentic everyday? 


Authenticity is reliability, dependability, trustworthiness, credibility. It is a collection of real qualities a genuine person has developed over time through life relationships, experiences and even trials. It is the requirement for the best life ever. I started a new blog series this month: 31 days of Authenticity where I will post every morning a new quote to inspire you to always be authentic. Its a challenge that I know will help me to be me all day everyday! So follow along, this will be fun!
