How does Authenticity Look on You?

What if you were to be more of you every moment of every day?

To let your light shine through?

The truth is, most people are afraid to let their true selves out because…

  • No one will like them
  • They will be judged (and that hurts)
  • Maybe they don't even feel like they love themselves very much; why would anyone else?

I'm on a crusade. A personal crusade to let more and more of the real Meghann out. To allow myself to evolve, shift and change as my intuition guides me. To forgive myself (for whatever ‘wrongs' I have judged myself for doing). And most of all, to love myself more and more every day.

Going on crusades for others doesn't really work that well. However, the more that I BE me, the more that I see that reflected in those I care about who surround me. It's like they are more comfortable to be themselves because I am.

The truth is, people will judge you – no matter what. In fact, when you begin to be more of you – the true, divine you (not your lower ego self) – the judgments from outsiders may even increase for a period of time. You will surely make some people uncomfortable (mainly because they don't know what to do around someone who is truly being authentically them.) You could continue to make yourself small, or to act like someone else, but that feels creepy too, right? And how's that working out for you?

If you're like I was several years ago and you feel ‘on the fence' about liking yourself, there is hope! For me, it was going on a spiritual journey, which led me in a big circle, letting go of years of content, self-judgment, self-sabotage, self-(you name it)… full circle right back to me. I now feel happy in my own skin, at home in myself. Loving me (most of the time) greatly, which leads to a plethora of love to then give out to others.

As a marketing coach, this step in my path is also crucial to my success and the success of my clients. In order to represent ourselves accurately, we must first be ourselves fully, right? Right!

And I'm excited, because this journey is never ending. It's called life. And I'm in this body for another 60 years or so 🙂 So I may as well really be ME!!

I would love to hear your story – do you feel like you're always BEing the true you? 

In times passed, when you have stepped into being more of YOU, how did that feel?
