Authenticity shouldn't be entirely reliant on any one thing - it's a buffet of all things.
Authenticity is personal, it's private, it's public, it's social, it's unique, it's fear and anger, it's love and beauty, it's risky and bold, it's weird and off-beat. It's life experience, it's balance and imbalance. Authenticity is the formula to reinvent the formula.
It is different for every one of us, but it translates to every one of us.
Because something about it rings true.
