Authenticity ...

To strive toward authenticity is an admirable pursuit!

Being authentic will mean different things to different people; but to me it is largely about being congruent. What we do, what we say, how we behave, how we live - all beginning to align. We can never please everyone - this is an impossibility. There are those who will love us for our congruence - there are those who will despise us for it. But in being congruent - in being authentic - we carve for ourselves a much clearer course into the future. Being congruent - being authentic - requires effort, attention, discipline and a willingness to admit to our faults - and a desire to make ongoing course corrections so that the various aspects of our being begin to more closely align. So on the mat - and so too in life. JBW
