Being True To Yourself

I was recently reading an article that was passed on to me from a coworker about being true to yourself. I think it had some great points, and I wanted to share them all of you.

In the story of Noah's ark, Noah was already almost 500 years old when he heard the voice of God commanding him to building a giant four hundred foot ark. Noah had never seen a boat this size in his lifetime and certainly did not posses the knowledge of how to build such a thing, but as he was guided by God's instruction which came thru him. Everyone around Noah laughed and still Noah keep going he trusted God and kept working. Through it took 120 years, and Noah completed the ark, he and his family, and all the animals were then saved from the floods that rushed the earth. Had not noah stayed true to himself, ignoring those voices of the people around him, the world as we know it would be totally different? maybe even extinct? I don't know if God would have let this happen, but Noah definitly had to stay believe in what God was telling him, and staying true to what was being instructed, not easily influenced by those around him.

Being true to yourself means looking within to discover what you know in your heart to be right and then acting on it. It does not mean following every last whim or urge that you might have; that is just selfishness in disguise. It means being true to your values and morals. It meals being honest in all things; knowing the truth, walking by that truth, and living by that truth. And being true to yourself, might be different to you, than someone else being true to them.. It is not always easy to go against the grain... and no one can do this for you, but you..

Have you been true to yourself today?
