Weirdos Unite! A Lesson on Authenticity
Let’s talk authenticity.
Being your honest to god, true self isn’t as easy as it sounds. But today, I’m sucking up the fear and coming out of the closet.
You may have noticed that I’ve been away for a while. Well, considering the blog only launched a few months ago it may seem weird that I’m having a change of heart, or skipping out on posts. But that is because I AM weird, I’m my own freaky weird self and I have been too afraid to share that with you.
And because of that my heart hasn’t been in it.
How can you be madly passionate about something that is a constant battle? A battle against your own authenticity.
So I came to a fork in the road.
My choices were to grow a pair (of big, beautiful lady balls) and EMBRACE the fuck outta myself. Or, alternatively, skirt the issue for eternity. Stick to the shadows and never fulfil my sparkly purpose in this lifetime.
I’ve chosen to EMBRACE. And I’d like to start over, reintroduce myself properly and get into my groove.
So, here goes…
The thing is, I believe that entrepreneurialism is a lifestyle, a weighty commitment and a journey. Yep, cliche I know, but if you’re on it, you get what I mean. Right…?
What is life without a few cliches here and there, they make things a little more romantic and we all need more romance in our world, ladies!
The question I pose is: if we’re all on this journey together then how can we make it easier?
You might be right at the beginning of the winding road, hanging of a cliff midway, or possibly sticking your flag in at the peak. But one thing is for sure we all hit the same bumps and potholes along the way.
Authenticity is one of these. You cannot pass further along the road if you are not working in your zone of genius.
The answer to this question is different for everyone and that is why we form tribes, resonate with some and not others. But MY answer is: spirituality.
Faith in something bigger than me really keeps me going, knowing that something or someone has got my back makes it simpler.
I cannot lose or fail, not with the universe conspiring WITH me.
It’s a comfort, some might see it as a comfort blanket but, hey, they’re not my people.
There are so many tools out there that can help us in business, but I’m not talking about the physical tools and products you can utilise, I’m talking about energy, healing, intuition, connection to spirit, chakras, ancient knowledge and manifestation.
I’m talking woo-woo 😉
I’m woo-woo, I believe in reincarnation and that I have an octopus as a spirit animal. I’m a great big weirdo and I know that magic is real. I know that the movement of the planets can effect my day to day life and that when I pull a tarot card it really is teaching me something that I need to know.
These things are my truth, they’re in my thoughts daily.
And I know there are plenty of you out there too that feel like I have for a very long time, stifled, terrified, even in denial.
Synchronicity means you’re here, reading this article.
I needed to write it and you needed to read it, there’s a whole bunch of us who feel like our weirdo tendencies aren’t welcome in the ‘real’ world. But I say, “Fuck that!”
We have every right to be our authentic selves and have a safe space to talk about these things and how they relate to our businesses and lives.
I want to make this whole biz thing easier for you, I implore you to give yourself permission to be yourself. And then we can use this wonderful world of magic to make it a fun filled road trip to satisfaction.
No regrets. Not even on our death beds.
So there will be some changes around here. This is my internet-home and I want to welcome all my crazy internet friends to be inspired and accepted whilst visiting me here. (The kitchen’s over there, help yourself).
The ethos is the same, I still stand for everything I’ve ever said within these pages, but now it’s everything and more. Everything with a large does of authenticity.
Fuck you fear!
Love bombs for all!
