Who Do We Want To Be?

 

“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.”
― Brené Brown

 

Who do I want to be in this world? How can my actions reflect my true inner self? Only I can control this. If I pass the reign to others, then I surrender myself. If I act or refrain from acting because I am worried about the response than I become something lesser. Authenticity is addictive. The more we act as ourselves, the easier it becomes to do so. The more we compromise ourselves, the easier that becomes as well and it is a slippery slope that leads to all forms of distress both physically and emotionally.

Quote of the Day – January 31 2013

“I now see how gifts like courage, compassion, and connection only work when they are exercised. Every day.”
― Brene Brown

 

Connection
flowing through
into me, into you
checking in
harmony
playing in unity

 

Disconnection
playing solo
feeling solo
where are you?
lonely, not really feeling
see the ceiling
that’s the floor

 

Snapping out
realizing my part
plugging in my heart
here we are
peace, watching the weather
emotions together
all will pass

— G A Rosenberg

 

Today I felt an enormous sense of disconnection all day. Sad, lonely, cut off form those around me. I couldn’t figure out quite what it was but gradually as the day wore on and I started to witness more and more it came clear. Funny, I have written about watching the emotional weather patterns pass through but actually having to practice it? Took some work
Blessings, G
