Week 4- Who Am I?
This week we dove deep into the realms of who we really are. This took a lot of time and though. Obviously, this isn't something that you can learn over night, but taking the time to find a quiet place, sit down and analyze your intentions, goals and currently lifestyle can really help you determine where you are compared to where you want to be and who you want to be. Before we can discover where we want to be, we first have to define who we are and who we want to become. This week we wrote out some of our core values and beliefs. We asked ourselves, "What do you stand for?", "What do you believe in?", "What are some true principles that you are currently grounded in?". Some of my values and beliefs include being honest in my dealings with my fellow men and being charitable to others. When faced with certain problems or challenges, we sometimes find a potential quick-fix or way out of the terrible situation we're in. Being dishonest may allow you to free yourself from whatever problem your facing, but keeping your integrity by being honest will always outweigh the quick fix. We're in this life now to help us prepare to meet God again and one day we will have to sit down and either explain our poor choices and suffer the consequences or we will sit together and talk while we fish, or, what ever it is one does during judgement. The point is to live your best every day by doing the small things and will lead you to doing greater things. Be honest in your dealings and make corrections when mistakes are made.
This week was all about finding who we are and defining who we want to become. I think I have a lot more to think about this week.
