Authenticity is often an overused word that is rarely understood. Many would define authenticity, as “‘being honest” or “telling the truth.” It encompasses so very much more. It is best defined as a congruency between the inside world and the outside world. Your inside world being your beliefs and values, your feelings, your gifts and talents, your passions and dreams, and your challenges and experiences. Your outside world is work, home, community, play, and life.
