Episode 232: Unpacking Authenticity

Being “authentic” or “authenticity” can be frequently used (and sometimes even over-used) buzz words in our world currently. But I read something this week that made me totally re-think what authenticity actually means, which isn't just about trying to share unfiltered pictures or messy, imperfect moments of our lives. This definition goes deeper into self-acceptance and the way we act maybe even more importantly in our private lives and even the thought processes in our own minds and what it really takes to be able to sleep well at the end of the day knowing you stayed true to the person you are, completely and authentically.
