Don't Try To Be Someone You're Not

I read this on someone's blog today. I've heard it before. We all have. It made me stop and think. Who am I trying to be? It's incredibly popular to be snarky nowadays (and yes I just said nowadays - eek!). You know, snarky...

snarky adjective \ˈsnär-kē\
1 : crotchety, snappish
2 : sarcastic, impertinent, or irreverent in tone or manner

It's popular to let it all out and show every single darn frustration you have experienced that day. While I agree with letting off steam and being honest about yourself - that is not what I am speaking of today. This is about a permanent state of mind. This is not the focus I want my life to have. 

See, I am not naive. I know my life isn't perfect. I know that I could fill a novel with my complaints. I could. But, I want the story of my life to have a different theme. 

This is what I want to shoot for. To be. I am a Christian. That brings with it a certain responsibility to try to be someone I'm not. That's right. I'm trying to be like Jesus. I've got a long way to go, obviously, but it takes baby steps.
