It is Wishcasting Wednesday and this week’s prompt is “What Do You Wish To Choose?” I choose to be authentic.
Authenticity seems to be my word for the month. It is honestly something that I am still trying to grasp the full meaning of what it means to me. I need to figure out what is authentically “me”. I didn’t realize that it would be so hard to figure out who I want to be and what I want, but I am making progress on the journey.
Over the last two years, I have been on a path to self-discovery and sometimes it feels like I’ve barely begun to take the first steps. I feel like I still have so much to discover about myself. At times I wonder why I bother trying to change myself. After all, one would think that the best way to be authentic would be to embrace just who I am in this moment.
I don’t agree. I think being authentic is striving to be everything that I want to be.
“Authenticity is the degree to which one is true to one’s own personality, spirit, or character.”
My soul, my inner self, has so much in store for me. I know that everything I am meant to be is already inside of me, waiting for the right time to blossom. I don’t think we as people should ever stop learning and growing. We should strive to be someone that allows our souls to feel full and nourished. It can feel like so much work but I know that it is worth it. I see that it is worth it. In the last month, I have embraced my authentic self and it has felt wonderful.
The last few weeks have been full of joy, laughter, and lightness that has been manifested by my authentic self. I have tried not to let other people influence how I feel about myself which has probably been the biggest change. When you open yourself up to all the positivity in the world blessings manifest at every turn. There is so much joy and goodness in the world that is just waiting to be acknowledged.
Right now, I acknowledge who I am in this moment. I love who I am and I love the person I am becoming. I owe myself nothing less.
