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.on being authentic

“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.

    Oh, dear Dominee, such wise words. Why just today i heard word about a person from my past who still stubbornly refuses to acknowledge that there is much to know…about himself…and about the connection we all share with others. Sad that… and then your post so filled with hope and promise. Good on you … continue on. The way is long and circuitous to be sure. But the journey is so worth it.
    As you wish for yourself, so i too wish for you also.

    Dominee – this is a great wish! Nothing is more powerful, IMO, than a person who knows who they are. I hear you about the vast amount there is to learn – can we ever know all of ourself? We're a UNIVERSE inside!! :)

    As you wish for yourself, I wish for you as well!

    Isn't it amazing that we keep discovering new things about ourselves? Doesn't matter what age. And it's true, silencing other's voices and unsaid expectations can be challenging. This, is a powerful wish.

    Continue with the journey and your path will become clearer and clearer with each day. And I think that's such a great word to have for a month!

    As you wish for yourself, so I truly wish for you also.

    Walking that line between loving who I am while honoring who I am becoming isn't modeled for us very often….but I think it must be one of the life lessons that bring us optimum peace when we get it. As you wish for yourself, so I wish for you as well.
