To live out loud means for us to fully express who we are and who we have come here to be. Throughout this month, we will explore the practice of cultivating authenticity which empowers us to step into all areas of our life in integrity with our real authentic self. Brene Brown offers a definition, “Authenticity is the daily practice of letting go of who we think we’re supposed to be and embracing who we are” (The Gifts of Imperfection, p. 50). Cultivating authenticity is not about becoming something other than who you are, rather it involves us in releasing those patterns of thought, attitudes, and actions that act as barriers to us standing in our personal truth and power. And by taking up this practice we develop courage to be vulnerable to stand in that truth. This month we will explore parts of the practice for authentically living out loud.
