“NOT EVERYONE CAN GO WITH YOU”

I CANT ALWAYS ALLOW OTHERS TO DEFINE ME, IN FACT I CANNOT ALLOW ANYONE TO DEFINE ME OR PUT ME IN A BOX.  YES, I AM A BORN AGAIN CHRISTIAN WOMAN.  WHAT THIS MEANT FOR ME FOR A LONG TIME WAS, I CANT MESS UP, AND IF I DID I WAS BEYOND FORGIVENESS.  MESSING UP COULD BE AS SIMPLE AS SPEAKING MY MIND, AND OFFENDING SOMEONE, AS OPPOSED TO PRESSING MY TOE INTO THE GROUND.

I AM NOW AT A POINT IN MY LIFE AND AN AGE WHERE WISDOM IS BETTER ACCESSIBLE, (SMILES), AND EXPERIENCE IS MORE THAN WHAT HAPPENED, BUT ALSO WHAT I LEARNT.

NOW I SPEAK MORE FREELY OF EXACTLY WHAT I FEEL, TAKE MORE CHANCES,  THINK OF MYSELF BEFORE OTHERS SOMETIMES, (AND I LIKE IT).

I KNOW NOW I OWE EXPLANATIONS FOR MY CHOICES TO GOD ALONE.  NOT EVERY ONE WILL RESPECT THOSE CHOICES, BUT I AM NOT OBLIGATED TO ACCEPT THEIRS EITHER.

AS A BORN AGAIN CHRISTIAN, I HAVE TO LIVE IN THIS WORLD YET NOT BE OF THIS WORLD AND I WILL NOT COMPROMISE THAT.  YET NOW I CAN LAUGH AT THINGS THAT BEFORE I TOOK TOO SERIOUSLY.  MY SKIRT DOESN’T HAVE TO SWEEP THE GROUND, MY HAIR DOESN’T ALWAYS HAVE TO BE COVERED.  THOSE ARE LIFESTYLE CHOICES AND BRAINWASHING OF THOSE WE TRUST TO GUIDE US. LOVING GOD IS MORE PERSONAL FOR ME.

I AM FREE TO BE ALEXIA IN EVERY SENSE OF THE WORD,THIS IS SOOOO EMPOWERING AND YET I HAVE NEVER FELT CLOSER TO GOD!

MANY PEOPLE WILL NEVER APPROVE OF ME ANYWAYS, BUT THAT IS ALRIGHT, IT’S NOT MY JOB TO APPROVE YOU OR OF YOU.  IF YOU ARE MY FRIEND YOU WILL ALWAYS BE MY FRIEND.

DISCLAIMER: I STILL CANNOT STAND CURSE WORDS!!
