Finding your voice

Standard

It is funny how themes enter your life. During these times, it seems as if every book you read, every programme watched on TV and every conversation entered into or even overheard, appears to speak to you about this theme. Lately, the theme for me has been authenticity. I can’t seem to escape it. Perhaps my subconscious is trying to tell me something about my own authenticity.

So, why is it important to be authentic? Does it matter?

For me, authenticity is all about connection; connection with your true self and connection with everything and everybody. It is living bravely, being prepared to act and behave in a manner that will not please everyone and may even cause you some embarrassment. It is hearing someone speak passionately about their dreams, whilst also telling you about their fears. It is being naked in the truest sense, and shedding the mask and layers of protection that form barriers in our relationship with others. When this happens, you can feel the energy and see the impact authenticity has on the individual being it and on the people they come into connect with.

Let’s be brave. Let’s take a chance and free our authentic voices whilst we still have breath to do it.

  1. 100% resonates with me Charlie and you’ve captured the message with your usual profound and straightforward expression – many thanks.

    “When this happens, you can feel the energy and see the impact authenticity has on the individual being it and on the people they come into connect with.” – so true, and this happened for me as recently as last evening. Being brave brings priceless rewards.

    • Thank you for your comment Peter – authenticity is so important since it allows people to express who they really are. You are someone who lives authenticity and therefore I am not surprised about your recent experience. Keep doing it!
