To Be “Weird” is to Be Real

While watching the sun rise today I met two amazing guys…pretty sure it was spiritually orchestrated by God. One guy shared a song by Jason Mraz called “Sunshine”. We listened to it and shared stories about ourselves as the sun came up. The other guy apologized for being “weird.” We all smiled and agreed how nice it is to be at a place where we are not considered “weird”, but instead appreciated for our unique individuality. He then shared a quote from St. Paul:

“I care very little if I am judged by you or by any human court; indeed, I do not even judge myself.” -1 Corinthians 4:3-5

Wow! I was not at all expecting this guy to quote a verse from the Bible. If that’s not God giving me a little message this morning, then I don’t know what else is. Love how He uses people to speak light and love to me in places where I least expect it. I am so grateful for Kripalu and am so grateful for my quiet solo retreats where I can just go within and rediscover who I am and who I’m made to be.

To be weird is to be real. To be weird is to be genuine. To be weird is to be authentic. I love “weird” people!
