Being My Authentic Self
Happy New Year! I like to tackle the new year with optimism, vigor, and boldness. That’s why I’ve chosen “authenticity” as my theme for 2019. I spent many years living in fear of what I would experience at work on any given day so I tempered my authentic self. Fear can do funny things to people – change them. You can imagine (or may have experienced) how repressive this is and how it contributes to poor self-image and negative thoughts – a bad mental state. Well, enough is enough! I’m taking back my authenticity and choosing to perpetuate it in an effort to make 2019 a great year.
Have you experienced a time when you were not your most authentic self? Have you experienced situations where you knew you had to be tempered or there were serious consequences? It’s a real way of life for many.
People know authenticity – they feel it and can see it. It helps guide many in their decision-making process. It’s a game-changer for others. I know this year will be filled with ups and downs and allowing myself to live more authentically will be empowering life-changing for me.
Out with the old, in with the new! How will you live your 2019?
