Take a closer look within

Which one is real?  Why is authenticity important?

You would have to look very close to determine which one of these pictures represents an authentic diamond.  When determining authenticity perhaps you would look at clarity or even look at the cut of the diamond.  Perhaps some would look at the size to determine authenticity. There are a number of tests that you can conduct to tell the difference between a genuine diamond and a fake. The authenticity of a diamond is important because it measures the rings VALUE.  I speak with people daily that are faced with being true and authentic. To be transparent and REAL, I have struggled with this as well.  It is very easy to represent different faces to so many people while masking your true self for fear of not being accepted.  What I’ve come to realize is that I am really not any different from the diamond.  Value is measured internally and not externally.  To understand your purpose and value you must seek clarity and be true to yourself.   So my question to you is which picture do you represent?

  1. This message is very timely because a lot of people hide behind a made up version of themselves because they think they will be hurt or not accepted for who they really are. I have always made it a practice to just be myself. It takes less energy and I have found that even if I may not be the kind of person that certain people choose to associate with they will always respect me for being true to myself. I still have some work to do around allowing myself to be vulnerable sometimes and I tell myself that showing a little vulnerability (which is a part of being authentic) may open doors and bring in blessings….but that’s still a work in progress.

  2. Hi Ms. Matthews
    I was thinking about you and want to know how to get Dalyn registered with your company?
    I see God is still blessing!
