    Great post Amanda. It’s empowering, enlightening and thought provoking all at the same time. Being authentic to me means real or original without changes or alterations. I think to really find out who we are we have to accept what we think are flaws and really forget about what society thinks we should do, or how we should act. I think this is hard to do especially when you are looking for acceptance with those around you. To be vulnerable you are also opening yourself up for judgement and if you are opening up to a person you trust then what they say may not be judgement but rather constructive criticism but sometimes feelings still get hurt. I think it’s during these times that when you can move forward and remain unscathed by hurt feelings you know by not becoming jaded that we can accept what is and isn’t therefore cultivate a little more of ourselves.

    Happy Valentine’s Day to you and fam!
