Getting to Know Myself

I figure since I'm in my last semester of highschool I should start to figure out who I am and what I want to do with my life. So far I've realized it's a lot easier to figure out what I want to do with my life and who I want to become than to figure out who I am right now. It seems silly to say that I don't know who I am, I mean I've been myself for almost eighteen years and yet I still don't know much about myself. I know that I like music and that I like to make people happy but other than that I find myself sort of changing with the group of people I surround myself with. I'm not a chameleon and I'm not comfortable with how much I change depending on who I spend time with so I'm determined to actually get to know myself and to stand firm with who I am. I think the first step in figuring out who I truly am is to become stronger in my faith because I believe that in order to know who I am I have to find myself through God. I tend to water down my religion in front of my friends who aren't religious and I tone down my faith in front of pretty much everyone around me because I don't want to be judged but now I realize that hiding my faith also hides a big part of my life. So today I'm beginning a journey to find myself through my faith and I'm using this blog so that I can look back later in life and see how far I've come. I hope you'll come along on this journey with me and that you'll get to know yourself a little bit more.


  1. Girl. In August I decided to follow and trust God completely, no matter the consequences. I will admit, I'm kind of the loner girl at school now, but I have never felt more fulfilled or more myself. It has been an incredible journey for me and I'm so happy that you are going down a similar path. Hopefully we can grow in our faith and as a person together. It has been life changing for me and hopefully it will be for you too:)

  2. I think this is AWESOME. I definitely feel that God is going to use this in so many different, amazing ways! So many people struggle with this issue and you could be the first that they see to actually publish it, and that in itself could help them find their way. I hope and pray that God gives you the strength and persistence to continue this spiritual journey, and beware of the devil because he is definitely going to be trying to knock you down. I also pray that this will be used as a ministry to many, many people!!
    You rock,
