For May 2020, the monthly virtue theme I chose is authenticity.
To me, authenticity is a person’s will to follow their heart and face the diversity this decision causes. It’s an expression of originality that opens doors to who you’re meant to be, the unique characteristic that makes one stand out.
In my experience, the hardest thing about authenticity is accepting that nobody else can hear my inner voice or understand how the experience moves me. It takes a lot of time and effort to connect with myself, trust my heart and be confident with my life. The temptation to doubt becomes practice to test who I am.
Every journey is diverse and it is hardships that reap rewards to fill your spirit. Take time to be on your own, dare yourself to follow a different path and collect your treasure at the end of the colorful rainbow.
