Everyday we tell ourselves a story. A story of who we are and what we’re capable of. But so often that story is filled with self-doubt and fear.
I’ve struggled with perfectionism my whole life. Scared to let people see my true self. Scared to be vulnerable. For years, I valued approval more then my own authenticity.
It wasn’t until I decided to change the story I was telling myself, that I felt free from the illusion of perfectionism.
It isn’t easy to practice self love and share your true selves in a world that is constantly trying to make us a copy of someone else. We live in a world where you can compare yourself to anyone at the click of a button. But trust me, comparison is the theft of joy. It takes deep courage and strength to be genuine. To be ourselves. Everyday. Without regrets.
Authenticity isn’t a destination – it’s a conscious choice and daily practice. It’s a journey to self acceptance. Only when we let go of the expectations of others can we embrace who we really are. Because a truly fulfilling life comes from being your authentic self.
This necklace is my daily reminder to practice. To be fearlessly authentic.
