Authenticity Postscriptum: True Colors

True Colors

Synchronicity can be defined as when the Universe becomes personal. Call it coincidence, call it connection, but sometimes life pitches you a softball that you not only must catch, but also document and share in a musing.

So it was when my dear friend shared a link to a Washington Post article that poked fun at a recent Twitter post while inspiring a bit of nostalgia:

I’ve just read that apparently the song that was number 1 on your 14th birthday defines your life 

(The post, as of this writing, has 575 retweets and 3,727 likes.)

My song? Cyndi Lauper’s “True Colors.” The synchronicity? It’s ALL ABOUT authenticity, the topic of my most recent published musing.

As you may remember:

But I see your true colors, shining through

I see your true colors, and that’s why I love you

So don’t be afraid, to let them show

your true colors, true colors

Are beautiful, like a rainbow…

Authenticity defines my life? I’ll catch that softball. It’s a hard-earned play.
