Life is precious as it is.

All the elements for your happiness are already here.

There is no need to run, strive, search, or struggle.

Just Be.

Thich Nhat Hahn

 

Be yourself

It’s a funny thing to contemplate because we reply:  who else could I be? But we all know it to be true. We pretend, wear masks and act in ways that are not true  to ourselves to seek approval and make others happy. For today, begin saying Be Yourself and see what comes up for you. And some journal prompts to support your reflection are below:

Journal Questions:

Make a list of the qualities that best describe your real self.

When do I feel most like myself?  When do I feel like I am pretending?

If the definition of  ” authentic”  is ” when your insides and outsides match”, then when am I out of congruency with myself?

Are there people I don’t act myself with? Who do I act like then?
