Being Who You Say You Are
Are you who you say you are online? I don’t mean being a “creepy weird guy”, I mean do you ever go out of your way to seem like you’re something more than you really are online? With today’s social media and the ability to portray something different, I wonder if we don’t sometimes do that. It’s actually a pretty easy trap to get into. I can honestly say I know a very special group of people that don’t.
My wife and I recently got to spend some time with some incredibly gifted, talented and amazing people. What impressed me the most is that they are EXACTLY who they appear to be online. At no point did I walk away thinking “wow, they really had me fooled”. What you see is what you get and I mean that in the very best way. It was refreshing. I have been “following” quality, character people and to see them live that out in their daily life was something special.
So who are you online?
If someone spent a weekend at your house, would they see that same person?
Would they walk away thankful or disappointed?
Thankfully, I was NOT disappointed.
They were exactly who and what I thought they were….and that is a VERY good thing.
