This week as we recorded our first podcast (it airs Monday morning), Lorelle asked about authenticity. I answered that it’s who we are when no one is looking, when we’re being naturally and infinitely true to our humanity. Authenticity isn’t something we teach. It’s something we can see when it’s there and something we sense when it’s missing.
Authenticity is a bright harbor morning anticipating the sailboats arriving in their own time. It’s not proud, noisy, or meant to make us larger. Authenticity offers respect and shines on all things within its reach.
Authenticity is golden. It can’t be faked, borrowed, or stolen.
When our hearts are connected and other directed, we shine like that sun on the water. We show the promise of who we are and who we could be.
Nothing is more authentic than a decent human being. Authenticity creates joy, trust, and energy. It’s is our gift to each other wrapped in respect for all things living.
Share your promise this weekend. Create an authentic memory.
