be-authenticBEach Inspirations: Be Authentic ~ 8 Authentic Self Quotes

“The privilege of a lifetime is to become who you truly are.” — C.G. Jung

Are You Being True To You?

Shailene Woodley’s quote “I think the most important thing in life is self-love, because if you don’t have self-love, and respect for everything about your own body, your own soul, your own capsule, then how can you have an authentic relationship with anyone else?  reflects my thoughts on the importance of self-love. Unless we love and respect ourself, yes every part of US!

That can be challenging I know. My recent journey to wellness included a huge dose of self-love. I had already spent many years working on myself, yet back in July 2011, I discovered I had another stage in the journey to really love me, and yes it is still a work in progress.

If you are a regular reader here you will know I said that BEach Inspiration would be a regular Friday feature! Well last week my lovely blog decided to misbehave. The weather also has been grey, so sand writing time has been very slim. I had written Be Authentic earlier on, when I started making the collection of A words for the book.  So today I have decided to share my favorite quotes about being your authentic self. Being true to you. 🙂 These quotes  speak to me about being authentic:

Being authentic is the ability to be true to oneself. Living an authentic life requires the ability to be true to our own wants, needs and desires and not live our lives by the opinion of others. Being authentic is the ability to make self-honoring choices and stand firmly in who we are in our core. Being true to ourselves gives us the insight and compassion to see others for who they are, not who we expect them to be. It frees us up from the judgment of ourselves and others and it gives others the freedom to be themselves as well.  ~Victoria J. Reynolds

“We have to dare to be ourselves, however frightening or strange that self may prove to be.”  ― May Sarton

That inner voice has both gentleness and clarity. So to get to authenticity, you really keep going down to the bone, to the honesty, and the inevitability of something. – Meredith Monk

We need to find the courage to say NO to the things and people that are not serving us if we want to rediscover ourselves and live our lives with authenticity. – Barbara de Angelis

The authentic self is the soul made visible. ~ Sarah Ban Breathnach

Feelings or emotions are the universal language and are to be honored. They are the authentic expression of who you are at your deepest place. ~ Judith Wright
