  1. Otiti says:

    Ahh, where do I begin? Authenticity. Permission. REAL expression. They’re often whittled down or wholly absent from our lives because we’re so attuned to the cues in our external environment: “Maybe I should dress this way so these people will accept me. I should probably talk like this so I can belong to that (cool) circle. I wonder if they’ll like me more if I act just like them?” It’s all such a waste of time!
    The courage to stand apart, to follow your own voice, to BE YOUR OWN person, is something we all need to grab in great big fistfuls. No one’s going to give us their blessing to be our true selves. We have to do it for ourselves, for us. Because it’s liberating. Because we need to. Because we have the right to dare and the light to shine brighter than the stars in the sky and the fire to burn baby burn.

  2. Jessie Jess says:

    Otiti thank you so much for sharing your thoughts! Real expression can be a constant struggle for individuals. We hope we can shed some light on this and get the conversation started. Your thoughts are very inspiring!

  3. Otiti says:

    Oh, I just realised I forgot to share what gives me permission to be myself! Writing my truth. Living it. Having a safe space to bare my heart’s expression with the people I love and trust. Matching my behaviour to my intuition. Dancing in the flow of my core even if I’m the only one hearing the music, LOL.

  4. Otiti says:

    Oh wow, thank you! You inspired me too. I believe inspiration begets inspiration, LOL. Premakarini and I were wondering how to get more voices to open up and share their experiences on here, so I’m just doing what I can to encourage everyone out there. 🙂

  5. Premakarini says:

    Thank you so much for being a part of this, Otiti! Isn’t it powerful to do this?! And fun! I so appreciate all that you add, always! xo

  6. Premakarini says:

    I know that for me living my passions: giving myself permission to do only what I adore, has totally changed the game, too. Thanks for mentioning this: powerful!

  7. Premakarini says:

    Authentic expression:I wonder what makes it hardest? Social pressure to fit in or is it a simple lack of awareness of what is possible? Always trying to figure this out so I can share more helpful ideas + information.

  8. Premakarini says:

    SO SO true! well said! AMEN!! thank you for saying: “It takes courage to stand apart, to follow your own voice, to be your own person” I think just saying these words empowers. And you are so right in saying that we are looking for external cues instead of taking the time to explore who we WANT to be more than anything – or anyone – else. I think that the moment we REALIZE this, everything changes.
    Otiti! Thank you so!

  1. I like this message but the font should be serif; much easier to read. Please make the layout a bit more eccentric! Peace, Joseph

  1. Love this post Justine! You are absolutely right… In diving deep inside and identifying my core values… what is important to me, and then building a business around those.. things have been aligning left and right. By letting myself be “me,” and honoring mySelf, I was able to open myself up, for really the first time in my life! The relationships I’ve formed, the doors that have been opened.. all remarkably amazing!

    I feel a new blog post on my end adding onto this great post! Thank you!!

    This is magnificent. Now I know for sure that there’s an explosion of love and awareness sweeping across the globe, a wave of enlightenment to elevate us to a higher standard of life and fulfilment. How else can you explain the fact that different bloggers and writers are waking up to the beauty of love, positive emotional expression, and sharing? As always, your writing sheds light on a part of my soul I didn’t even know I had. Thank you for sharing. 🙂
