I'm so glad my friend told me about this challenge about 2 months ago. At the time I thought...oh that will be fun I will wait and sign up later...after all April seemed so far away at the time. Little did I know that April would be sneaking up on me like a predator on its prey. I had no idea time could move so quickly! But I am here, ready to write, to think, to ponder, to meet some new friends...and hopefully to gain some insight into living life authentically.
I have already written blogs about being authentic...being real...so I thought why not make this month about really truly digging deep into my authentic self, and write straight from my heart. Sometimes authenticity can be funny, sometimes it can be raw, most of the times though authenticity just needs to be felt, pondered and lived.
I want to be Absolutely Authentic with my Attitude. Sometimes my attitude stinks. I get caught up in my feelings and the things that I think are going wrong in my life....I forget that my attitude is a reflection of my heart...of the peace in my heart. I want to be authentic and real, to have an attitude of joy and for people to be able to see transparency in me. I don't want to hide though, and pretend that I agree just because it is what I am "supposed" to do. Who makes the rules anyways? So for me being authentic might mean having a bad attitude sometimes, not because it is right...but because it is real.
Maybe I am still working through what it means to be Absolutely Authentic with my Attitude, but at least I can be more aware of it today, then I was yesterday...and work to be authentic in all things.
