Authentically You {Reading}


 It's been awhile since I have updated you on Operation Authenticity.  It's been in the back of my mind, and I have been making small progresses here and there.  I am definitely back into the swing of reading.  I finished Steve Martin's "An Object of Beauty" while I was on bed rest last week.  I highly recommend it.  I also recently picked up a copy of "Style Statement: Live by your own design" by Carrie McCarthy and Danielle LaPorte.  I have loved this book and their premise behind it for years now.  It is definitely a great one for those looking to get back to their authentic self like me.  I wanted to share with you a few quotes that really stuck with me from their "Manifesto of Style", which consists of 20 great reminders to guide your daily life:
 

"Communicate who you are in all you do.  Consistency is power.  When the various parts of your life reflect your essence, your life moves in the direction you want it to.

"Authenticity is energizing, economical, and efficient.  The better you know yourself, the clearer your choices.  Self-awareness leads to true style."

"It's always a good time to be yourself. And it's never too late. Possibility exists all of the time, everywhere.  You haven't missed your chance to be your most beautiful."

Pretty powerful stuff if you ask me.  I'm going to be visiting this book time and time again for support and inspiration for sure.
