What I have learned for myself is that the goal is not always to make everything perfect around me, but to LIVE fully, to the best of my ability, wherever I am. It is being content to balance my life with what God gives me!
I have had to change my focus and perception of how I look at life. Yes, sometimes that has meant moving to a new place, or staying on the same job and position in order to live more peacefully.
Now that I am fully embracing authentic living, my intent remains the same in spite of my circumstances or whims. Authentic living isn’t necessarily being perfect or without flaws or living beneath your anointing , as some may think, it is living on purpose and with purpose according to what I have been given.
I have had to make some sacrifices in order to fully live Authentic and Content in the moments I have. I can’t chase down authenticity or find it somewhere it doesn’t exist. Authenticity looks different at my house than it might look at your house.
You can’t necessarily spot someone who is living authentically just because of the car they drive, the kind of house they live in, the things they have, or the place they buy their groceries.
Authenticity is a series of personal decisions I make every day. While I sometimes think it would be great to go back in time and make life a “do over” I’m content where I am today. Life isn’t perfect, struggles still loom over us and some uncertainty of our future remains. But I’m happy to just fully live in the moments I’m given.
So, in a nutshell, that is my journey towards authentic living.
Peace & Blessings
