“If it wasn’t hard, everyone would do it. It’s the hard that makes it great.”Tom Hanks
There are people who are always in love with the sky, no matter the weather
One day you will find someone who’ll love you the same way
Words of wisdom by this wonderful lady Brene Brown. She couldn’t find a definition for authenticity, so she just made one up
Authenticity is a choice and needs practise.
Authenticity is the daily practise of letting go of who we think we’re supposed to be and embracing who we actually are.
Choosing authenticity means cultivating the courage to be imperfect, to set boundaries and to allow ourselves to be vulnerable, expressing compassion that comes from knowing that we’re all made of strength and struggle and nurturing the connection and sense of belonging that can only happen when we believe we’re enough.
Authenticity demands whole-hearted living and loving even when it’s hard.
Even when we’re wrestling with the shame and fear of not being good enough and especially when the joy is so intense that we’re afraid to let ourselves feel it.
Mindfully practising authenticity during our soul-searching struggles is how we invite grace, joy and gratitude into our lives.
This was an extract out of an audiobook that I highly recommend to anyone, called “The power of vulnerability”, Brene Brown
It’s one of the best and funniest audiobooks I’ve listened to!
An advice of a father how to manage struggle in school
Think of school like a video game. Every time you fight a battle you gain XP (that’s experience, for the non-gamers) . So even if you loose, you still move forward. How you choose to react determines the impact that it has on you. And remember, it can’t get any worse.
The challenges you are facing this year will help you in the future, because you are learning to be resilient.
