>Identity Theft…

Posted: May 11, 2009 in Uncategorized

>When I was a kid I wanted to be everyone else but “me”…….Fred Savage of The Wonder Years…..Ralph Machio From The Karate Kid…..The lead singer to the band ‘Warrant’….(ummm, please keep the last one between us). We’ve all imagined of being someone else…..especially when we were younger. From time to time, however, I run into someone seeming to act odd. At first I might not be able to put my finger on it, but soon I realize that the person is trying to act like someone else. How they dress, walk, talk, what they do in their spare time. It really does become like identity theft. They want to be percieved as something other than who they are because either they don’t really know who they are or don’t like who they are. They select characteristics of someone they wish they were like and in some ways steal their identity. The rub here is that the person ends up throwing away an oppurtunity to embrace who they are and develop what makes them distinct. Bottom Line: it’s great to have people to look to as mentors and and role models, but we must come to know who we are and realize our uniqueness is a God given gift.

I am Who I am,
