The Word Authentic is a very powerful word

Being authentic is being real. It is being genuine. It also is a process of being honest to yourself. It is in finding alignment with our hearts' desires, to our values and in 'not pretending'. It requires courage. It is uplifting. It may be tough but it is worth every bit of it. It is in taking a stand for our beliefs and not escaping unpleasant situations.

It makes us love ourselves even if the world does not. We may 'have' less. We will still 'be' more. Isn't that fantastic?

In my work, being authentic has meant different things at different times. Sometimes, it has been in forgiving. Sometimes it has been in making a new beginning. Sometimes, it has been in listening to criticisms without replying, waiting for my work to do the talking. Sometimes it has been in letting go while sometimes it has meant to hold on. I have experienced that following this path has always pointed me toward rightness, peace and flow...

With no offense meant to anyone, here are a few questions that might help you in being more authentic. If it is useful, please go ahead and answer them when you feel like. If nothing else, it will help you in understanding yourself. Let me warn you. This might make you smile too... And yes, you can answer them in any order you like...
