Relentness Authenticity


I aspire to relentless authenticity. I read that phrase in a New Yorker article about Marc Jacobs today, I don't much aspire to be him or want what he wants but I do aspire to relentless authenticity. I want show up, not to be seen but to be who I am. I want to stay centered and love who I am. I want to be authentic in all that I do.

I am going to revisit this topic often because I do not believe I am expressing myself very well but I do think I want to clarify this for me.

That's an interesting thought, affinity. I think of you as someone who speaks her mind, at least among friends, but I guess that is not really the same thing as authenticity. How do you think your life would be different if you achieved "relentless authenticity"?

I don't really see it as speaking my mind so much as being who i am. Even less concern for what anyone "thinks" about my actions and whether it is "cool" to be me and more concern about whether it expresses more of who I aspire to. I aspire to be kinder, is that at odds with relentless authenticity?

Thanks for asking, I would love to hear more about how you feel about the subject.
