Wednesday Words of Wisdom
By definition, authenticity is the quality of being authentic. And the definition of authentic is of undisputed origin; genuine.
Imagine if every single person on planet earth lived by those definitions. Just imagine that for a second.
It would be pretty incredible, wouldn’t it?
Because when you live authentically, you are living exactly as who you are, deep down to your core. And living exactly as who you are is crucial to feeling true happiness and joy.
In order to be authentic, one must act as they feel and feel as they act. One must believe her thoughts, and her thoughts need to align with her beliefs.
It can be very easy to get caught up in acting a certain way because that’s how you think you should act. However, acting in any way other than genuine is doing yourself and those around you a disservice.
It’s important to take the time to really know and understand who you are, what you believe, and why because then acting in such a way will be effortless because it’s really not acting; it’s simply living.
