It's Friday, l bet most of you are ready to swing, pick up your girls/boys and hit the beach scene because the weather is just perfect.
In the midst of all the happy weekend vibes, l wanted to remind you the importance of staying true to yourself. The advent of social media, on the positive side has given power to the individual in terms of self-branding, self-promotion and it has also been a platform to stay connected with family and friends. However, on the negative side it has also birthed a need to keep up appearances and stay updated, there's a strong desire to be seen in positive light, being seen in the right places, with the right people.There's nothing wrong with that, unless of course everything is within your means and ability. But, just remember that what you see on social media is not a true reflection of reality, so don't stretch yourself to compete with other people who you don't know how they are getting their means, so stay true to yourself.
According to Certified Life coach Michael Feeley, "Being true to yourself is a personal choice for truth, it starts with knowing who you are and accepting yourself, knowing your strengths, passions, limitations and purpose in life and then living that way all the time."
When we deeply understand how to be true, life takes a new meaning. It becomes easy to absorb and enjoy every moment of your life because you are only in competition with yourself. Therefore there is no need to compete with the Jones because your moments will ooze positive energy and you will be happier because you are in complete control of your life. \
Feely says, "Examine your life and see if every single situation you are involved in is healthy for you and for your mind and your heart." He continues to say ask yourself: Am l being true to myself here? If not change it. Now that we are clear on self truth, let your truth shine, and have a wonderful weekend.
I am off to a fabulous weekend with my kids.
