Hi, everyone! I’m stopping in to share an excerpt from an amazing book that’s worth purchasing! Also, don’t forget to check out tonight’s post (:

“September 20: The Enemy Within
We have met the enemy and he is us. - Pogo (Walt Kelly)
…..
The ego has everything to lose once your authentic self grows strong enough to act consciously on your behalf, guiding your creaive choices, decisions, ambitions, and actions for you Highest Good. What was standard operating procedure before - denial, sublimation, repression - is recognized for what it is: subtle self-abuse. When you become authentic, you become greater than you ever thought you could be, and this greatness allows you to heal yourself, your family, and your world. Your authentic self is your ego’s worst nightmare.”

For more on the ego, check out last Saturday’s post “Why Size Most Definitely Matters.”

How To Get More By Doing Less

“I want to be happier.” “I want to read more.” “I want to play the drums.” “I want to get better at football.” “I want to make better grades.”

I want, I want, I want.

This is not a post about laziness, nor is it about ungratefulness and self-satisfaction. This post is about getting more out of life by eliminating distractions.

How many of you still have New Year Resolutions from 5, 6, 7 years ago that you still haven’t accomplished? Have you actually achieved your resolutions? Reached your goal weight, been nicer, spent more time with family, relaxed more, or whatever else you listed? The answer is probably no. More than likely you haven’t achieved the New Year resolution that you have been repeating every year, but guess what? YOU’RE NOT ALONE!

Each one of us has to do list new year resolutions , bucket lists, that we still haven’t checked off. Why is this?

You see the solution is not the absence of goals, new year resolutions, to do lists or bucket lists, but simply a silencing of distractions.

Your phone, it’s apps, your TV, your clutter, all of the clothes that you never wear all are just distractions. How many times do you check Instagram or Facebook while doing your homework? How often do you read every other email but the email you were supposed to read? How many times have you been perfectly fine and content with what you had, until you opened a magazine and realized everything you didn’t have?

This post is not anti-technology, social media, magazines, or any of that. I love that stuff and I’m not suggesting you completely give it up. All I’m saying is focus on the things that actually matter and in life and understand that majority of the time your phone, TV, and computer are distractions.

Enjoy life! Spend more time doing the activities and hobbies you love. actually interact with your family and friends more. Finally check OFF that New Year resolution, to do list, bucket list that you have since you the great depression.

We all have 24 hours in a day. With 8 hours of sleep that still leaves 16. With 8 hours of work, you still have 8 hours left to enjoy your life to the fullest. That may sound unrealistic or , but turn off the tv, put down your phone, turn off your computer, and see how far 8 hours takes you!

Your post about body positivity.... 👌 thank you so much! I wouldn't say I'm skinny, I'm a D cup, but because of a fast metabolism I don't gain a lot of weight and people don't realize how much it hurts for them to call me skinny and to use phrases such as "only dogs go for bones." I think people need to realize it's two sides of the same coin and that we should empower all men and women to feel good about themselves and your post is a step closer to that 😘 thank you

authentically-human answered:

Yes! Empowerment is the best message we can spread & thank you so much for sharing your story. There are a lot of people out there, on both sides, who face scrutiny. It’s really important for us to use these experiences to inspire & motivate others to love and accept the bodies they’re in.

Thank you so much for sharing your story, and for checking out our latest post. Stay empowered! ❤ ❤

Sappy Sunday Take 1: Your Strength vs. My Weakness

The other day I had the opportunity to write my first play! Better than that, I was able to actually witness it being performed. Needless to say, I was happy. I wrote the entire play in one day, as did everyone else who participated in the play event. Despite the short time period, I was pretty proud of myself. I mean I did think it was pretty corny, but overall I knew that I did a fantastic job with it being my first play.
