You know I love authenticity- let’s walk the walk & talk the talk!

Happy Friday friends! It has been one non-stop week, so I couldn’t be more excited to be on PTO today to be volunteering with the Heart Gallery for our big gala tonight. I love spending the day volunteering because it helps me “reset” and puts my priorities back in order. Do y’all ever feel that way?

It was perfect timing to share this “Walk the Walk” tee that I just scooped up (& lucky you it’s an extra 30% off today!) because y’all know that my heart just beats for authenticity. Growing up my parents would always tell me that you needed to not only “talk the talk” but “walk the walk” Did you hear that too?? Basically, they taught me that I couldn’t just say things that sounded nice & good & pretty- I had to live a life and take action in ways that reflected it! It’s a lesson that’s always stuck with me!

Unfortunately, I think we have all come across people in our lives who look great on paper/Instagram & seem to live life one way, and then when you meet them in person you realize that life does not reflect those truths at all! It’s a hard pill to swallow! Especially in the age of prevalent social media, it’s easy to slap a version of yourself online that looks one way when your life looks another. That’s why authenticity is SO important! I’m the first to admit that I am full of flaws (another post for another day!) but I try to share those- along with all the good too- so that when someone meets me there is no hidden surprise. The best compliments I receive are when I meet blog readers in real life and they say “you’re just like I thought you’d be from your blog”. Man, authenticity is good stuff y’all!

So can I challenge you, just as I challenge myself every day, to both Walk the Walk & Talk the Talk? Let’s live authentic lives together- it’s so much more fun!
