Being authentic means being venerable and having the willingness to put yourself out there. Pretty easy concept except it is SO hard.
I have always been slightly off center but spent a lot of years trying to conform to others version of what I should be. I can tell you from experience if you can’t be you – you can’t be your best self.
So here it goes; I love to sing loud in the car, I have full on conversations with my dogs and myself. When I have the time I paint – painting gives me an outlet to put emotions on the canvass and out of my head or heart. I love 80’s music and have a lot of useless trivia in my head. I would rather dance than walk, I love the sun and water. I’m horribly shy and have full on panic attacks if you call on me to speak in front of more than 5 people. I’m obsessed with converse and heels – yes I may be confused there. I color coordinate my closet. I have to have my chocolate Nesquick, my special glass and spoon every morning – yes I have a special glass and spoon, who doesn’t?
What I have found out is that all these little things make me unique and I finally appreciate all of it!! I am being my Authentic Self – let the adventures begin!
