Something I’ve been pondering over in the last couple months is “Living an Authentic Life”. I could read a number of blogs or articles on authenticity in leadership or living authentically. However, I feel that to fully understand what being authentic means to me, I need to spend some time thinking on authenticity and what it means in my life.

Today we’ll start with the definition from Google:

au·then·tic·i·ty
