Authentic, Genuine Change Starts Within

“We live in a world that is beyond our control, and life is in a constant flux of change. So we have a decision to make: keep trying to control a storm that is not going to go away or start learning how to live within the rain.”Glenn Pemberton

Imagine we try to circumvent the inward-looking self-examination, self-searching, and self-discovery process to maintain an authentic persona. In that circumstance, we will feel the infelicitous effects on our behaviours, mental attitude, and overall performance. We should offer ourselves kindness on a daily basis, realizing that the uniqueness we know at this moment is ever-changing.

I recognize that, too often in our lives, we concentrate on the outer versions of who we are rather than the inner versions of who we are. Our journey toward personal development is a test of endurance, not a mad dash that will torment us to the depths of who we are ― which can be torturous. Yet turning inward on our journey presents us with a window of opportunity to discover our authentic selves and the experiences that provoke our creativity, tenacity, passion and innovation.

Life is about unpacking the most insufferable question of “Who am I?” and being at peace with the discoveries. Even now, I still ask myself these three words: Who am I? This question fundamentally becomes our guiding star and the prevailing compass of our own self-management.

As we reflect on today and the coming months, let’s not lose track of the actuality in which we have the unique circumstance to devote time and energy not just to others but ourselves. The relationship with ourselves will be the fundamental relationship we indelibly nurture.
