But most important, I now understand that if I do not express my authenticity, the Universe will be deprived of who I came here to be. — Anita Moorjani

When I hear the word ‘authentic’ I am filled with feelings of being totally real in the face of the unreal. I think of devotion to an honest and pure life. I think about staying in touch with who you are at your core with no questions because you are all you have in the long run.

Knowing that you are true to who you are is a very large step to pure authenticity. There is nothing more beautiful than the one who is loyal and trustworthy to the individual who is true to themselves. Once you are steadfast in remaining in your own authentic Self, then it is much easier to share that spark with others. In turn, you will realize that we are all connected in some way, and then the authentic connection takes off and brings many people together.

Have you been one of those people who thought that you could just go through Life without anyone (whether you feel you have been hurt or wronged, etc) and then finally have to admit you do need some people around you? Me too.

To open your heart and allow the circle to get larger means taking a leap of faith. You might not know where these relationships will take you; you just know you have to try. And even though there are plenty of chances for failure and disappointment, in the end, if you remain true to yourself and your inner voice, then no matter what happens, you know you will be okay.

There is a gorgeous freedom in absolute knowledge that you are doing all you can to remain on the line of truth. To put your self-growth, self-love and self-awareness first is so complex that it is actually very simple. When you begin to accept that you carry that Star inside of you – the less you will search for it in each person, place or thing you come across.

The Journey taken is not an easy one, but with faith in you and who you are and trusting, allowing and feeling all you need to, there is no where to go but up. You will meet people who will come into your Life and change everything, and just as quick will vanish. You will meet others that seem to not change much, but remain around. You will meet those who become so important to you, that time and space will never break your bond.

Even if death separates you from some of your connections, know that Life as you know it would not be the same without those – yes all of those – connections. We cannot make it solo. To quote Lost, “No one does it alone. They all needed you as much as you needed them.” (Christian to Jack; series finale, 2010).

“Authenticity is a collection of choices that we have to make every day. It’s about the choice to show up and be real. The choice to be honest. The choice to let our true selves be seen.” – Brene’ Brown

The best I can offer is me, the true, authentic me. The me that I am most proud to be. The me that does not conform to changing scenery or people. The me that is steadfast, pure and true love for Life. Without our authenticity, we would not make it too far in this world.

After everything, I believe now, more than ever, that I am worth it, that I am authentic and that I am somebody to this Life.
