On Authenticity

Brené Brown said, “Authenticity is the daily practice of letting go of who we think we’re supposed to be and embracing who we are.” Your authenticity is your beautiful uniqueness and differentiator. It is the magnificent, real you. Your authentic self has no competition. There is only one you. You are a gift to others, in your way of seeing things, living life and serving people. Your authenticity is a magnet that attracts others who see, hear and feel a consistency of words, actions, attitude and behavior. It is emblematic of your leadership, a credibility to which others give the most precious gift of their trust. As Jenny Garrett writes, “When you show up authentic, you create the space for others to do the same. Walk in your truth.”

May you live the joy, excitement and possibilities of your beautiful authenticity, and may you hear the words of Brené Brown, “What makes you vulnerable, makes you beautiful. There’s a word for it…. Authentic.” The greatest gift you can give and leave the world is the beautiful gift of you. An in your majestic authenticity, may you always remember, as Margaret Mead wrote, that “You are absolutely unique. Just like everyone else.”

Have a beautiful day and a magnificent week!!!
