Authenticity, Get Good At It!
"This is who we are. Accept it. Or better yet, enjoy it." - HUMAN TORCH
Superheroes, when was the last time you did something that was truly authentic to yourself? I often catch myself acting or presenting myself in a certain way because it is what I think is expected of me. In moments like these, I try to acknowledge the ridiculousness of it all, smile to myself, and then do something that really makes my heart sing. It might be something silly like sticking out my tongue and making a sound or something more intentional like greeting the very next person I see on the sidewalk. Either way, if you ever find yourself being anything other than who you are, practice recognizing it and break the cycle by striving for something a little more authentic. The power of being authentic to one's self is a power much stronger than being anything else. Be who you are...and GET GOOD AT IT!
In the words of another citizen superhero, Abraham Lincoln, “Whatever you are, be a good one.”
Practice and Feel Strength,
