I’ve got to be honest – ever since I decided to start a new blog (this blog!) with a focus on authenticity and being true to your self, things have been falling to place in mysterious ways, and life has been showing me more and more how important it is for me to live this way, to share it, encourage it, and express it.
I keep seeing and hearing things that remind and encourage me to just be me, to do the things that I want and feel that I should, to follow the beat of my tambourine heart, and I am loving it!
I have always been and felt something like this: a trapezoidal peg surrounded by round holes. I have tried again and again to make myself fit into these holes, but (spoiler alter!) it just doesn’t work.
Because by trying to fit into these round holes, I am actively living in a way that is not authentic. I am not being true to my trapezoidal ways. I am trying to be something that I am not. Even on the occasion, when a round hole is large enough for me to squeeze into, there’s still always something that just doesn’t feel right about it!
A person cannot be their best self or live their best life when they are not being authentic, or when they are trying to fit into standards and expectations that don’t meet their own needs. This is something I have experienced a lot in my own life – and this is why I feel so strongly about my newfound devotion to myself, and encouraging others to adopt a similar kind of lifestyle (one that’s all about being true to themselves).
I want to take this time to say thank you to everyone who has been following along as I’ve been embarking on this journey – to everyone who has taken the time to get to know me through my blog. I hope that it has inspired you to live in a way that’s authentic to you and I hope you stick around to see what else I’ve got coming.
