Be yourself, be authentic

Words of wisdom by this wonderful lady Brene Brown. She couldn’t find a definition for authenticity, so she just made one up

au·then·tic·i·ty /ˌôTHenˈtisədē/

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!

The Moon Song

I’m lying on the moon
My dear, I’ll be there soon

It’s a quiet and starry place
Time’s we’re swallowed up
In space we’re here a million miles away

There’s things I wish I knew
There’s no thing I’d keep from you
It’s a dark and shiny place
But with you my dear
I’m safe and we’re a million miles away

We’re lying on the moon
It’s a perfect afternoon
Your shadow follows me all day
Making sure that I’m
Okay and we’re a million miles away

– Karen O.
