5 Simple Reminders for Authentic Living

Living authentically means encompassing the truth of who you innately are and moving forward each day with integrity and conviction in all that you do. Take pride in being your truest self beyond the expectations and beliefs of others. We only need to validate and accept ourselves, fully and lovingly. Here are 5 Short and simple reminders for authentic living!

1. Follow your heart!

Be guided by that intuitive voice within and trust your gut instincts to lead you in the direction of your hearts way. Step back from any mental noise and retreat to the most intelligent force of wisdom inside you! Your heart is like a compass and it will always take you to where you need to be at that time. Be a heart-led human!

2. Live to your own expectations.

You will never be able to please everyone, but you will be able to please yourself. You can only be accountable for your own actions, so follow what you feel is right for you! Don’t be afraid to steer away from the crowd and carve or create your own path. We are all designed beautifully unique; light your own way with your highest intention for your greatest good.

3. Use your voice!

Speak your truth with passion and purpose in the originality of who you are. Your voice has as much right as anyone else’s to be heard and appreciated, so believe in its worth and individual substance. Talk your talk and people will find truth and resonance in your words.

4. Lovingly accept yourself.

Everything exists in polarity and we are all made up of both the light and the dark pieces of the personality puzzle. Accepting yourself shows bravery, fortitude, and a deep love of self; it is where you feel most comfortable in just being you, no approval needed. Self knowledge is the gateway to self acceptance. Show gratitude for everything that encourages greater self knowledge and builds on your inner wisdom!

5. When no one else celebrates you, celebrate yourself!

Look within to feed yourself with what you need to feel happy and content inside. All you need to succeed and find fulfillment rests deeply within you and you can access it at any time. When we look outwardly for recognition and love it promotes a sense of lack within ourselves. We lack nothing! Always value and treasure the ‘you’ in your entirety, and sing your own song for you. Feed yourself with love and not lack!

Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition, they somehow know what you want to become. Everything else is secondary” – Steve Jobs
