Reflections Before Bedtime #42

They say a photo is worth a thousand words. It seems that these days we live off of illusions. Many times, things aren’t what they seem, and people aren’t who they project themselves to be.

We hide behind masks and large sunglasses–hoping no one will see our reality and how we feel. In relationships, we are insecure, manipulative and selfish… We sell ourselves as an image with no depth. We talk about authentic living, but we are afraid to be different.

It isn’t until we come clean about who we are; until we start living with some integrity and confronting our weaknesses– it isn’t until then that we can start growing and truly be free.

Be a boss. Be all that God made you to be.
