Embracing Authenticity

Embracing authenticity
means shaking off the status quo
and letting go
of societal expectations
that don’t seem to fit.

Choosing your own path—
even if it’s much different
and less structured
then the one you envisioned.

Striving for what we know to be true
once we’ve slowed down
long enough
to think about it.
