Great to be back and I feel lucky and blessed to be able share with you what has made a difference in my journey. I want to take the time to share a little bit about authenticity. What a difference it makes to be able to remain authentic throughout any situation. I believe that authenticity and confidence share the same space. They are both qualities that rely on being present being sure and being able to be yourself.
How do we get authentic? It's easy. Here's a great first step that has helped me in my journey.
First allow yourself to think and feel the realness of your thoughts and feelings. If you go over some of the times you wanted to say something today but didn't. Take a moment to respond to these situations in your head. Be honest! If the first thing you say doesn't feel right say it again. The most important part of this step is you get to a place where you feel what you're saying is your truth. Not someone else's, not what you think or feel you should say but what you want to say.
By doing this you will cultivate an understanding of yourself and your needs. Think about how these situations made you feel.
Was it important to yo to have your feelings acknowledged? Was it important to have your opinion heard?
Being heard and being seen are true human needs and I will explore these in another post.
For now sit with what you've discovered. What you have just done is incredible you have stepped into a deeper and greater understanding of authenticity. Amazing work!
I can't wait to share more with you guys!
Have a great day.
