I was talking with Chad the other day and I have been thinking a lot about what he said.  We were talking about how hard it is to be authentic, you know the real you.  I mean really being yourself.  The thing holding most of us back is fear that we won't be liked or accepted.  Chad said, and I hope I get this right, "If you really understand how much God loves you, then it does not matter what anyone thinks of you, because God loves you, I mean to say he really, really Loves you."  He said this to me about three or four times just to make sure I got it.  It is still sinking in.  We each received incredible gifts including our own personality.  I think a lot of times we hide these gifts because we think it will make us look foolish or idiotic. In reality, when we are ourselves, we are the most joyful, empowered and courageous person.
