It really is.
If we could all learn to move authentically through life, freeing ourselves from societal judgment, constraints and assumptions… how beautiful would that be? If we all burst out of the boxes we’ve become trapped inside, they would no longer exist.
I believe that the world would be an infinitely better place if we could learn to expose and embrace our humanity as well as that of all those around us. We all have shit, so why do we spend so much time and energy trying to hide it? If everyone’s shit came out, then we could recognize ourselves in others and develop more compassion and understanding.
By finding our authenticity, we can eliminate stress, anger, and dis-ease. We can free our energy to flow as it should, unleashing our joy, creativity and unique gifts into the world. Doesn’t that sound better than repressing ourselves to avoid judgment or fit some idea of who we “should” be?
We can’t shift the paradigm without action. To make this dream a reality, we have to begin by bringing our full, authentic selves to the table. When we set this example, we give others permission to also be their true selves. It’s scary to be on the forefront of pioneering behavior, but just remember how many times something that was once unheard of quickly became common. It can be done. It must, for the health and well-being of us all.
Start inhabiting your truth. If you are disconnected from it, this is a great time to commit to self-exploration. You deserve to know yourself, love yourself, and be yourself.
