Authentic.

I was sitting in church a few weekends ago with Lynn, which by the way I'm LOVING the series we just wrapped up.  Anyways, I wanted to share a couple of my takeaways from the series, because I think there are a few things that not only we as bloggers can take away from it, but we as women as well.

The first thing that stuck out to me was when our pastor said what would happen if you & God took a selfie and instead of your outside appearance showing up, what your inner most thoughts and feelings were on display, would that be a selfie you'd want to be shared? That took me down a peg or two.  

Then he shared that when asked my generation of millenials, which depending on who you ask ranges from 1981 to 1996, what was one thing they strived to be, it was authentic. I was like those bobblehead dogs, nodding my head up and down.  Then he said, well, that's what their parents and grandparents generations said when they were asked as well.  

Oh. 

So what does this mean for me? It means that I'm still going to post selfies & strive for authenticity, because ever since I started blogging it's always been about showcasing me and my family's life in the most real and honest way possible, without sacrificing our privacy.  I am working on myself each and every day with God's help to say yes, that I would be happy to post that hypothetical selfie of God & I where only my inner most thoughts and actions were revealed.  

What is the biggest things you strive for?

  5. I want to be the person folks come to when they need a little help with their sense of reason. I'm fairly level headed and strive to keep things in perspective on a daily basis.

  8. I was sitting there with my mouth wide open pretty much the whole service and the week after that as well. I love when a service gets me really thinking like that!
