What did I learn today?

I am extremely humbled, grateful and excited to have the opportunity to
share the lessons I have learnt on my journeys, its a funny thing that
happens when I pay attention and be fully present! This month I want to
share the lessons learnt on authenticity! Feel free to share yours!

Authenticity - the creativity, the love, everything of value is really
about finding one's authenticity and giving it expression!

You always fear that your authenticity will not be appreciated by those
whom you love. And you are probably right. Authenticity is rarely
appreciated by anyone other than the author. So what will be your measuring
stick? - your own internal valuation of yourself of the price tag others
place on you? Why do you cheap yourself up, and why do you place everything
given to you on an action block for the bidding?

Are you so consumed with your materialistic point of view that nothing is
of worth unless it has an exchange value placed on it by someone else? Must
the price of everything be determined by how much someone else is willing
to give for it?

What about yourself?

What are you willing to give for what you have?

How much are you willing to invest in yourself and in your own ideas and
creative expression?

Just how much?
