Being Authentically Me

This morning it occurred to me how different I have become over the past couple of years.  Although, I may look the same I can guarantee that most of my friends will say they just don’t know me, anymore.  I have grown so much.  I have no regrets in the way I have lived my life.  I have forgiven myself for all of my minor indiscretions.  However, these days I would rather read, blog and spend time with my family rather than go out drink and act like a fool.

Over the weekend I received a message from a friend I haven’t seen or heard from in a long time. She asked me to come drink with her.  She obviously is unaware that I no longer drink, I thought to myself.  So, I sent her a message telling her so.  She promptly sent back a message “for real, OMG”.  So I sent her a message back explaining that although I no longer drink I still enjoy going out dancing now and again, but got no response.  It became apparent right away that maybe I need new friends.2d50a02f1ef5a50f53277a13612904f1

I understand that some of the people I used to be close to might think that I have gone off the deep end.  I have become a Spiritual being that trust completely in God.  I trust that he would never lead me astray, therefore, I fully allow Him to lead.  Whether or not I understand how or why, I still go with it.  I know longer struggle to get my own way.  I guess I have come to realize that my way is not usually the best way.  I believe and understand that God will get me there quicker and easier without my assistance.

I have a purpose to fulfill, and I feel pure comfort knowing that as long as I do my best every day and treat people with the utmost kindness and respect, and I am truly authentic at all times God will guide me through my path with ease.

    • It is, but the strangest thing is how OK I am with it. There was a time when that would have hurt my feelings. Now, I feel like it is a necessary step in getting where I need to be. People come into our lives to teach us something. When the lesson has been fulfilled they are no longer necessary.

        Love that feeling 🙂 I am going through something similar and I am always surprised by how easily I can take it when people off the radar because I no longer fit into their way of things or they don’t fit into my way of living. LOL. Great post!!!
