Thought 9/7

Good things are meant to be simply beautiful. In art, in fashion, in writing, in sports, in research, and in so many other things, we use beauty only as the means by which to compete. And yet, that kind of thinking punishes people for participating for participations sake only. If I’m not striving to prove myself to myself, or prove myself to the world, then what is left when I do what I love? Only what I care about and the beauty that was already there. Using good things to prove our worth is the pursuit of vanity.

I am a teacher-to-be who loves people. I am not afraid of many things. I like to explain my thoughts logically on a very birds-eye view level--I was born thinking that way. I follow Jesus Christ, and I accept only that label to describe my identity--that I am a child of God, as are infinite others, regardless of their other identities. Christ is my one thing.
