[What did I learn today? Lessons on the Journey to Unconditional Self Love] It just feels right

Authenticity is about returning and magnifying who you are, instead of
trying to become someone who you think you should be. It's about peeling
off the false adornments and standing wholly, holy, and true. What Did I
Learn Today? Lessons on the Journey to Unconditional Self Love

So my granma asks me why don't I get a "real job." I told her I found my
purpose and my path, she asked me what does that mean?

It means - what I am doing feels right! It just feels right.

You know when you are on purpose and on the path when you do not have to
betray yourself, Carolyn Myss (one of my favorite teachers says it well).

You are not put in a position to betray yourself

You are no longer in a position where you have to negotiate your sense of
integrity, which is another act of self betrayal.

You don't have to compromise who you are!

It isn't costing you your power!

It isn't costing you your psyche!

It isn't costing you your soul!

You don't feel confused on some deep level!

You don't feel drained - you may feel tired after a day's work but not
drained feeling like you are losing yourself.

It just feels right!

It feels right!

There is nothing, nothing worse than self-betrayal! And ask yourself this-
what is more important that your own commitment to yourself?
