After last night's blog I immediately knew what I wanted to write about tonight. I wanted to talk about Authenticity. I had a hard time growing up being my true self. I wanted to fit in; like everyone does. I stayed quiet most of the time and agreed with everyone else. It wasn't until I was in my late teens and out of high school that I started being me.
Being authentic is one of the most important things that you can do these days. Be your truest self, because it's tiring putting on a front. We spend so much time "living our best life" on Instagram, it makes you wonder whats real. Look some nights I forget to take my birth control and I dont feel like pouring a glass of water to take it so I grab the open bottle of wine out of the fridge and take it with that. We all have things that we don't blast all over the internet for everyone to see.
I'm not saying you should do that either. What I am saying is just be yourself. With that though doesn't mean that you get away with being a shit person because "that's just you". You don't get to be rude to someone and just say "oh, I'm just really honest", no you are mean. Be your most excellent self. I need to work on not cussing so much. It's doesn't portray myself in the best light. I want to always put my best foot forward.
Firs impressions, are important. Some say they are everything. You can't judge a book by its cover, but the cover does say a lot. First impressions leave a big impact, but they aren't forever either. What do you think the first impression is that you leave on most? Is it what you want it to be? We all want to be liked, that doesn't mean that we need to be door mats, but no one really WANTS to be disliked.
All I'm saying is be your best self, and be proud of what you are about. There is only one you, out of all the billions of people not one person has the same thumb print as you.... whats even crazier is that both of your thumbs have different prints. You are the only you that will ever be. So be the you-est you there is.
