What is authenticity? Well the dictionary says the word authentic means:

  • Of undisputed origin; genuine
  • made or done in the traditional or original way, or in a way that faithfully resembles an original
  • based on facts; accurate or reliable 

There is much truth to that, but how can we TRULY embrace our authenticity? What holds us back from being our true selves with no fear?


Being your authentic self seems so easy, right? Just wake up, and do what you do every day, right? Will, the truth is our day to day motions are not nearly a reflection of who we really are and what we really want to share with the world. By not sharing our true authentic self, we are stifling our creativity, our ingenuity, and our confidence. Fear of judgement is truly what holds us back from shedding the versions ourselves that hide the beauty of our authenticity.

Being confident is not about expressing yourself unabashedly on every opinion you have in the world, it is about being CONFIDENT of those opinions. True authenticity lies in your ability to be confident in who you are.

And how can build our confidence? Self love. The moment you can open your heart and learn to 100% fall in love with your best self, will be the moment your heart starts bursting with confidence. Start ridding of old habits, and develop beautiful new ones. Develop your own brand of happy, let it be special to you; it doesn’t have to be like everyone else’s, focus on you, and how you an better yourself. Love will pour into your heart, confidence will begin to shine, and you will be on the road to creating your true authentic self and living a live filled with joy.
