I have been away from blogging for a while (since I for some inexplicable reason have nothing useful to say right now!) but I have come across something today that really deserves to be brought to attention.
My friend, Mandie (my source of media gems), sent me a link today from the Huffington Post. It is a post by Jennifer Aniston in which she echoes some of my own sentiments about the disconnect about how the world thinks we should view ourselves and how we should actually view ourselves.
Is marriage or children or having a beautiful body or looking a certain way what’s most important? And does it matter what people say about me, their comments on what I should or shouldn’t do, their opinion of my life choices?
Please read this blog by Jennifer Aniston and let me know what you think.
Is there a happy ending for me other than getting married or having children or looking a certain way? Quite frankly, yes, there is. God has much more planned for you than you can ever imagine! Call on Him for your sense of your worth, for how you should view yourself, for your happy ending. And ignore those influences around you that really have no place in deciding who you are or who you will be. The One who created you is all you need.
(PS Really we should call it a ‘happy continuing’ because your life doesn’t end when you’ve found your purpose. Rather, you continue on in your life with new focus, new life and new joy!).
