Authenticity is a reflection of truthfulness and honesty to who you are.
There is no better representation of beauty than someone who is unafraid to be herself.
Define beauty, and I bet everyone will say something different because beauty is a perception that begins from within.
Define flaw and I bet everyone will say something different as well because flaws are a perception that begins from within.
To be authentic is to be vulnerable,
Is to embrace everything that makes us who we are and be okay with it,
Is to let people see all your different facets and be brave enough to own it and like it, when others may not.
It is a daily practice of –
Choosing how we want to live
Choosing to show up and be real
Choosing to be honest with our self
Choosing to let out true selves be seen
Choosing to take responsibility for our happiness and life instead of seeking validation from external sources.
Lastly, it’s knowing that no one can hurt you unless you let them, their opinions aren’t your problem. So don’t trade your authenticity for approval. The right people will eventually find you, stand by you and love you because you are you!
Remember this –
- If you don’t go after what you want, you will never have it
- If you don’t ask, the answer will always be no
- If you don’t step forward, you will always remain in the same place
- There are no rule for life. Dare to do things your way and if they don’t work, adjust them.
