Quote of The Day – Authenticity

I am currently reading “How To Write Non-Fiction” by Joanna Penn, and she shared this quote. In this chapter, she shares that authors should have a boundary regarding how much of their private life they share. She says to share, be authentic, be genuine but don’t share everything.

I am drawn to this quote as it applies to all aspects of life. It is all a choice. A collection of choices. How much do we share? What to keep private? What to sit on until we have calmed down from the emotional storm disturbing us.

Authenticity is honesty, and it lets our true self be seen in our life, or in our Author life (or our wannabe Author life).

“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, The Gifts of Imperfection

  1. I think people really feel it when someone is being authentic and they latch onto it. It’s something that’s missing so much in our lives. I actually feel like we’re more likely to find it online, ironically enough.

  2. Far too often when stop or stay because of what others will think or say or do. I say authenticity is inside us. It is a creative spirit that knows the sound of a bird’s song or the breeze of trees. I say my authenticity is my swagger my painting flowers however I choose. It’s like kids. They don’t care what’s right or wrong. All they want to do is create and give it to mom.
