Hey guys! :D For those of you who don't know me, I'm Faith and I blog over at Stories by Firefly and Chosen Vessels. I'm so excited to be joining this blog and these lovely young ladies.
We edit things, don't we? Maybe you don't that much—or maybe you've just never thought of it this way before—but I realized recently that I edit a lot of things.
Books, stories, blog posts, emails, text messages, social media posts...and the list goes on.
And in a way that's good, really good. When we are angry, upset, or hurt, we should be careful what we say and take time to work through our feelings before we spout off something hurtful. (Ranting on social media is rarely a good idea. *wink*)
But what about any other time? What about when we retract something, click that backspace key and remove our personality?
Are we bettering the original? Improving ourselves and our life stories? Or are we telling ourselves it's not right, it's not good enough, it just doesn't measure up...
What about in life? We're not literally 'editing', but perhaps we're not being ourselves either. Instead of letting our true selves shine through, we're often held back by the fear of being unfairly judged.
I'm here today to encourage you, dear reader, to stand up against fear. Instead of shoving ourselves into a mold with everyone else, let's be true.
Let's live the lives we were born to live, dears.
Let's the light God placed inside each of us and show the world his love.
Let's strive to be genuine, friends.
Let's show our feelings, our pain, and our scars.
Let's live life unedited.
I feel like this post was a bit disjointed and all-over-the-place, but I do hope you enjoyed. I'd love to hear your thoughts on the subject!
