This morning, I awoke and continued to think about my journey. I reflected on my life and how it is a daily practice. I hope sharing this helps others reflect and reminds us that it is not a straight line. And that's okay!


Authenticity is the daily practice

of letting go of who we think we’re supposed to be and embracing who we are.


Choosing authenticity means cultivating the courage to be imperfect,

to set boundaries,

and to allow ourselves to be vulnerable;

exercising the compassion that comes from knowing

that we are all made of strength and struggle; and

nurturing the connection and sense of belonging

that can only happen when we believe that we are enough.


Authenticity demands Wholehearted living and loving—

even when it’s hard,

even when we’re wrestling with the shame and fear of not being good enough,

and especially when the joy is so intense

that we’re afraid to let ourselves feel it.


Mindfully practicing authenticity during our most soul-searching struggles

is how we invite grace, joy, and gratitude into our lives.”
