One Day At A Time
At the end of your day, when you collapse into bed, who are you really – when no one is watching or judging you? And why hide her from the world?
Our lives are demanding! To thrive and survive a single day requires us to show up and participate. Yes, even when we’d rather be sleeping. Unfortunately, most days we show up as everyone else’s version of who we should be. From our hairstyle and clothing to our thoughts, beliefs, and values. How we navigate our lives is often driven or influenced by the thoughts and opinions of the people around us.
Other peoples’ opinions become our measuring stick to assess how near or far we sit from “perfect”. How we validate ourselves. The way we determine if we’re doing things “right”; saying things “right”; hanging with the “right” people; pursuing the “right” career; going to the “right” school. We spend the majority of our lives trying to fit perfectly into someone else’s imperfect world. And it’s hella exhausting!
True personal freedom comes from showing up in the world as your authentic self and living your personal truth every day.
Being you – the real you – takes courage and commitment each day. Courage to explore who you are at your core – your values, beliefs, desires, non-negotiables, and yes, all of your quirky and messy imperfections. And, commitment for the days when no one hits the like button, retweets, or subscribes to the real you, but you show up as your authentic self, anyway.
