Be brave! Be YOU!

A post shared by Siri Lindley (@sirilindley) on

Today, I want to talk about fearless authenticity.

My belief is that we were all put on this planet absolutely perfect just the way that we are.

I think where we get it wrong is that we need to be a certain type of person or do certain things or look a certain way in order to fit into a certain group or get a certain job or make a certain living.

But I honestly believe that is such a mistake because when we find our way back to our truth, to being exactly who we are and living our lives in that way, we certainly step into our truest power.

We are able to be all that we were put on this planet to be – and that’s extraordinary!  Because think about it, we live with ourselves every second of every minute of every hour of every day of every week of every month of every year of every decade.  We better be our own biggest supporters, we better love ourselves because if we don’t, if we lose track of who we are and what we love about ourselves and what we want and who we want to become and what we want to create – what kind of a life is that?

One of the most powerful lessons I’ve learned in my life is that I needed to love and appreciate myself first, before I could ever love, appreciate and inspire, take care of, teach, empower anyone else.

It starts with you.  Everything starts with you.

Be brave enough to recognize the beauty, the power, the perfection that is you exactly as you are and share that with the world.  Share the gift of you with this world.

Those are my words for today. It changed my life.

Be fearlessly authentic.

Believe in you.

Share the gift of you with this world.

And always be brave because you are beautiful.
