This above all: To thine own self be true, And it must follow, as the night the day, Thou canst not then be false to any man-
Good morning dear reader! If you stopped by today to hang out and read about the wonderful breakfast we have planned and the totally awesome workout we will be doing later? Now is a good time to scurry along and live vicariously through another blog-o-thingy. Authenticity…We love your “cute” little pictures of the charming breakfast you put together just as much as the next peep. Is it really you? We’re saying it’s not and the sooner we all agree to this the sooner we can press on…
Our struggle with authenticity transcends fitness and it hit us yesterday reading through some interesting blogs. We read maybe fifty blogs yesterday (a small sample size) of peeps proclaiming their excellence during a normal Monday; one after another making life seem so great with big broad smiles, fantastic dinner ideas and bloviated opinions. As the “likes” started pouring in…We applauded their terrific Pottery Barn perfect lives. Five fleeting minutes later we were left doubting what we had just digested: Were these peeps real? How many of these people are there lurking on the inter-webz?
With the evolution of our hyper obsessed, media driven society. It truly is hard to believe anyone’s appearance is real anymore, on-line or in real life (is there even a difference now?). Call us crazy or old-fashioned but we like to believe that there are areas of our lives that will remain free from this growing trend in our society. In the end, “WE” understand it’s not really possible to enrich/enhance who we are as individuals without working on ourselves from the inside out, or without authentic hard work.
Hopefully we took a few notes from yesterday to apply to today’s program? Any problems tumbling around? Did you do it gracefully or like a desk/office jockey?
