122 | Cultivate serenity and power using the discipline of trusting the process

God made you. So live your life. It’s YOUR job. If you are living a version of your life only because it’s the version that someone else thinks is what you should do, you will feel it in your bones. It will sap your power, meaning that sense of agency that creates energy to live your life. Authenticity looks like Acting from your core; doing/saying/showing up from your beliefs, values, choices, perspectives, and talents; being true to yourself, and living with integrity. Being authentic means being emotionally honest, clear about your experience of the world, and free of pretense. Being real. It’s a virtue needed for humility, which is indispensable for coping with life. A lack of authenticity leads to disconnection from yourself, from God, and from those around you. Brene Brown says  “Authenticity is the daily practice of letting go of who we think we’re supposed to be and embracing who we are.” Be more of what God created you to be; that, my friends, is a beautiful thing.
