For many this week is spring break, or last week may have been. During this time families take time together, to reconnect, to vacation, to live outside of the ordinary routine of life. It is a time to remember what is important to us as individuals. Often we vacation where we are the happiest. Where are you the happiest? Beach? Mountain? Hiking? Bustling City? Quiet hide-a-way in the country?
Can we really truly be happy because of our surrounding or is it because of the people that surround us?
There are people in everyone’s life that allow you to be truly authentic. My family is that for me. They embrace me and accept me at my silliest and help lighten my mood when I get too serious. When we feel the weight of the world on our shoulders those are the people we need to reach out to. There are life-long friends that understand all sides of us, as well as our families. Sometimes friends are who we turn to. Think about who that is for you?
Who can you really be free around?
Who accepts you when you are authentic?
Who can you open up your heart to best?
Who knows your deepest secrets and still loves you?
Who is the first person you turn to when you are sad?
Who do you reach out to when you are thrilled about something?
Who are you willing to let into the inner most corners of your heart?
You will achieve all your wildest dreams if you become authentic and be yourself. Don’t be afraid to be who God made you, for you are perfect in his eyes. Even with all your imperfections, He loves you and wants you to be all He created you to be while here on earth. Open your freaky, thoughtful, spiritual side. YES! You can be all those things and be a loved person. Don’t be afraid to show ALL your sides to those closest to you and to everyone you feel comfortable with. Soon you will be seeking to be your most authentic self in every situation!
So enjoy your spring break, be free from the daily routine and relax with those you love the TRUE YOU!!
