My talk was entitled The real me…Living an authentic life.
I was intimidated by the title because the theme is definitely not something I speak and write about often. Its great to do things that intimidate you because it makes you grow. This intimidation led me to spend plenty of time in prayer asking God about living the authentic life.
Authentic living has a lot to do with our identity. How do we identify ourselves? In the correct identity lies the secret to us being able to live an authentic life.
How do we identify ourselves?
- Our job?
- Our hobby?
- Our friends?
- Our family?
- How others identify us?
- Etc. Etc. Etc.
The key to making your life more authentic is by being more authentic in our encounters with Christ. If we come to prayer, mass, adoration etc. with no masks or false identities the more authentic we will be in the world.
He is Father. We are Sons and Daughters. In this simple statement lies the most basic truth of our identity and the secret to more authentic living.
