Today I was reading through a couple of blogs I like. And what hit me about both of them TODAY is "individuality".
The first blog was about a life list. Do you have one? Well, I don't. But I am thinking about starting one. It's a cool thing. This amazing woman shared hers and it was really cool. It can be a private thing, but I applaud her bravery in sharing hers. It helped to read someone else's list. Not that you (I) will duplicate it, but it is a good example of how you can open your mind and think and dream BIG! So, I think I just might start one of these lists.
The other blog was about just being yourself. She was talking about blogs, most specifically, and that's good for me too. But I am ** years old and I still needed that reminder. Sometimes it is really difficult to not be too concerned with what others might think and just be me. Through the years, I really haven't felt held back. But in honesty, I think that my thoughts, ideas and free expression of ME have been. I'm just now realizing that, I guess. I am not talking IN THE LEAST about what God thinks of me and what HE wants for my life. He is life and I absolutely have to live a life that He approves of. But what does that look like? It's not about clothing and home and outward appearance in any area of life. It's really all about scripture, attitude, morals, and heart.
So -- I'm feeling a little more free today. Free to be ME! :) Hope you are, too!
