Live as your natural self
“Live As Your Natural Self” was written by guest contributor, Babajide Faseyi.
I got the idea to write this while I sat on the couch, right before it was time for me to get dressed and leave the house. So then the question became should I leave the writing till later or should I strike while the iron is hot and write what I had to write?

The disadvantage in leaving the writing till later was that I lose the heat of the emotion, and then the writing does not carry the proper inspirational energy that it was meant to carry before. I could also end up forgetting what I wanted to write if I left it till later.
The disadvantage in writing now was that I end up hurrying the writing, and then it would not carry as much peace and joy as it would have if it were written from a much calmer place.
In the end, I decided to write up to this point and then I went to get dressed. That was what felt most natural for me to do in that moment. I felt I had captured enough of the raw emotion, and I was beginning to run late, so I decided to complete the last paragraph later.
And now that I am back to finish up, I am happy with myself for that decision and I don’t regret it one bit. I am happy that I checked in with my heart and not my head for what to do on this one. I clearly see how I could have overthought what my heart said to do and then end up not doing it, so I am glad that in this situation, I was able to be true and authentic to myself.

About the Author: My name is Babajide Faseyi. I was born and raised in Nigeria and then moved to the United States for college at the age of 19. In my 20’s, I became acutely aware that there was more to life than I had been taught and this led me to a deep search. I read voraciously. After a period of disillusionment with not having an outlet for the creativity that I felt within myself, I encountered Eckhart Tolle’s book, The Power of Now. And thus, the journey of knowing who I truly am and the discovery of what I have to offer creatively began.
