We Are Living Our Choices

Some things happen in life that we can’t always understand. Often times we are left wondering, why me? Why can’t I be healthier? Why can’t I be more financially stable? Why can’t I have that settled peace of mind? The problem with those thoughts is that they are centered in self-comparison.

We each choose our own journey. We must take ownership of that. If we wish to live a healthier life, we have to live a healthier lifestyle. We have the ability to seek out advice from doctors, nutritionists, and other professionals on healing our bodies. If we wish to live more financially comfortable we have to do the work to bring in additional revenue while saving rather than spending.

We can’t sit in the same shoes doing the same thing day after day and be angry that our lives never change. We have been given the ability to go out and make the choices on how we want to live our lives and make the changes that we need to make to reach the goals we want to reach. So what are you going to do today that is going to get you closer to the goal you are working towards?

Embracing Authenticity

What is it about authenticity that we love so much in others, yet fear the most in ourselves? When we show the world our true selves we open up to the cruelties of the world. We allow ourselves to be vulnerable and beneath the surface- that is what is so frightening.

For some, they view authenticity as an excuse to be rude and hateful, stating it’s just “who they are” and they are just being “authentic.” Y’all… this is not it! These people are being cruel to cover up something deep in themselves and when you stumble across these people- you have to make sure you have boundaries in place to protect yourself.

See, authenticity has nothing to do with being cruel or hateful, you can be both authentic to who you are while remaining kind and thoughtful of others. Read that again y’all.
