Being authentic becomes somewhat easier to practice when the soul connects you with your heart, that whispers practice authenticity unapologetically. Yes I’ve read or seen in many places the statement “unapologetically be yourself” but we all have our own ways for when and how something resonates deeply with us.
Being unapologetically myself for me meant trusting my strengths not doubting them and having compassion for my shortcomings not treating them as weaknesses. The heart granting permission is a sense of reassurance against any wobbles on the path. As if the wobble is expected but the heart is saying keep at it anyway.
Being unapologetically myself doesn’t mean I can never do something that won’t require an apology on mere grounds of I did it being myself, therefore it’s alright and to hell with anyone who says or thinks otherwise. No It means acknowledging that I’m not perfect. Thus finding a home in self love and not shame for my mistakes, is what ultimately assists my ability to show up authentic, unapologetically.
I find that I flow better with people who can see me in both my dark and light moments.
I find that I flow best when I don’t have to censor myself to protect sensitivities that aren’t mine. I flow better because censorship clogs my flow. Being authentic for me is trusting that my care and love is enough as carried by my potential. To censor indicates otherwise no wonder why I felt uneasy over extending or censoring parts of me.
Im discovering the nature of my soul through all that it is ok with, that I do or don’t do. Inner peace is my compass love is my food. Hope is my drink when doubt dehydrates me.
I am all of me unapologetically. I want to flow free like water and my soul is the only boat that can do that.
Goodbye to censorship, burdens and fear of mistakes. Hello to trust that I am enough.
