Are We Really Living Our Truth... Living Authentically?

So many people talk about living authentically - me included. We talk about living your truth, being real, being raw… but are we really living this way?

Are we owning the story of who we were, who we are and who we are becoming?

The ‘real’ you is ALL of you.

The one you are exposing and the one you are hiding. The one who is successful and the one who is crippled by fear. The one who is content and the one who is restless. The one who is confident and the one who is suffering.

The fact is, all the pieces make up our life. The puzzle that creates our life is made up of all the good, the bad and the ugly, and owning every ‘piece’ is what gives us strength. Owning our story gives us total control of our life. Embracing our story empowers us. 

The ‘real’ you is the one you portray at work, school, with friends; also the one who stares back at you in the mirror, eyes conveying your truth.

The ‘real’ you is the one you tell yourself you are; also the one who you believe you are.

The ‘real’ you is the one who portrays to “have it all together”; also the one who is scrambling like hell to “have it all together”.

The ‘real’ you is the one who is happy, satisfied and grateful; also the one pretending to be happy, satisfied and grateful so you don’t have to face the uncertainty and unhappiness the resides in your soul.

The ‘real’ you is the one who has developed defense mechanisms in order to mask the fear/pain/doubt you live with every day; also the one who remains stagnant in the pursuit of the life you desire because of the fear/pain/doubt you live with every day.

The ‘real’ you is the one sharing a story with the world; also the one who knows the story you are sharing is a facade.

The ‘real’ you is the one who recites positive affirmations and shouts them from the rooftops; also the one who doesn’t believe a single, solitary word. 

The ‘real’ you is the one who tells yourself, “I want to create a successful business”, or “I will exercise, eat healthy and take care of my body”; also the one who tells yourself, “I am not smart enough to create a successful business”, or “I don’t deserve a healthy, fit body”.

How are you embracing your story? Are you owning your story and retelling it in a way that gives you control, or are you a victim of your story? Are you designing and creating a new reality based on owning your story 100%?
