Through this evolution of mine I keep coming back to the same question. Is being authentically you, not the greatest gift you can give yourself, those around you and the whole of us? Part of the problem is really getting to that authentic Self. We are marred by “should.” What we “should” do. How we “should” act. These are imposed by our parents, relationships, environment and society, and after years and years those become the reality of us. Then, in essence, you lose your Self.
That’s the journey I’ve been on over the past 2 years or so. Beginning with evaluating and reinventing Babacita, my consulting business. But in reality it didn’t take me long to realize that I was evaluating my Self. Discovering my Self. Looking through all the “should” influence, eliminating the haze and clouds and really discovering me. Who was I? What makes me tick? How do I make this world better? Getting back to my authentic Self. Evolve, connect and inspire. Those three little words is John in the most general terms.
And through this journey, which is far from over, there has been much reflection and pain, but also such brilliance. A rebirth of me. Getting back to my childlike innocence and Self that had been lost, but also now with new life experiences that only add to the beauty.
It’s an amazing feeling. My authentic Self is alive and thriving like never before. Stay tuned. This is just the beginning.
