My family pillars are agape, authenticity and spiritual freedom. One of these quotes have been on my heart for a very long time. I think it encourages authenticity and it encourages, you to kind of just be you. It's from Renee Brown. She said that you either walk inside your story and own it. Or you stand outside your story and hustle for your worthiness. To me what that encourages is when you see people oftentimes feel like they have to be something else to be accepted.
Again, to me, acceptance is love, you have to try to be something else that you're not, economically, you're trying to be something that you're not romantically. You're trying to be something that you're not, socially or politically. This is when you're kinda are standing outside of your story, and you're trying to do things or go hustle for your worthiness. I think your that worthiness ties to your acceptance and love.
I think it's important to walk inside your own story and own it and really be you. I think people have a special tone, a special sound that the world wants to hear. A special taste that they can create in the kitchen or something like that. A special aroma that they're kind of creating. So be authentically you.
