The Powerful Paragraph

One of my favorite holiday movies is Elf. Between Will Ferrell’s comedic timing and the beautiful New York scenery, it’s a really well-done movie. I probably watch that movie a dozen or so times each holiday season, and what I love most about the movie is its message about originality; that no matter how hard people may try to force you into different boxes, it’s important to always let your true self shine through. Operating at our most authentic selves is also operating at our best selves, and each time Buddy stepped out of the box Walter tried to shove him in, he thrived.

The Powerful Question to Ponder

How can you step into your authentic self this week?
