I guess you can kinda say that this topic is my lane.
My first public speaking gig centered around the idea of being “Authentic” on social media.
A photo of my butt was reposted by SELF.
If you know me, you know that I wear my heart on my sleeve and that a toddler has a better poker face than I do.
Authenticity is now a buzz word – with everyone and anyone claiming that they can lead you to down the path of discovering your most authentic self.
I’m here to tell you, that it’s bullshit.
You don’t need anyone to tell you how to live YOUR most authentic life. You don’t need someone with 18K Instagram followers telling you what to do, buy, and how to live your life.
You just need to listen to you.
What works for some people doesn’t work for others, and that’s where the beauty of it all is.
There is no easy way to do it. Sometimes it’s really freaking hard. When people want you be everything. When they look to you for advice and you then center your life around trying to please your followers, that’s when you start to lose your magic.
So, my advice?
Be nice. Respect others. Don’t make plans and cancel them. Do what makes you happy, and get rid of those things that no longer serve you any more.
And don’t forget –
