It’s Smaller than You Think

Don’t let the posters that say “be yourself” and “speak your truth” overwhelm you. Standing in your truth and being yourself does not mean that your whole life needs an overhaul. It does not mean that you have to be something big and shiny and sparkly. You do not need to have a complete and clear outline of what it means to be you. Just start your day. Ask for guidance, “please help me live a little more like me than I did yesterday.” And then, let it go. Go about your day not striving to be your perfect self, not striving to speak your exact truth, but instead with a simple intention to live mindfully and make small decisions minute by minute to live in your groove.

Bonus thought: you’ll mess up, you won’t always make the “right” choice, that’s okay too, it’s part of your truth.
