An Authentic Me

A More Authentic Person
Who Are You Now?
When I become dedicated to something in my life, whether spiritually, emotionally, or physically, I often stray away from it after a few weeks of the same routine. Keeping to myself and being kind to others when I can is something that I've always done since I was young. Being an only child gives you the ability to thrive in your own presence and I still attribute my imagination to this factor of my life.
Dividing my life into sections, I would say that they are ranked as follows:
- Family and Friends
- Spiritual Life
- Personal Life
Who Do You Want to Become?
I don't want to fear growing up and leaving high school. I would like to be someone who inspires others and who helps other become better with my words and actions.
What Are Your Dreams in Life? Your Passions?
I dream of inspiring others and helping others understand places that they've never stepped foot on or seen before. It sounds strange to those who do not read, but to accomplish what I've read so many times before in some of my favorite books is such a dream for me.
Other than reading/writing, I take interest in music, art, and swimming.
English, reading, and learning about other cultures/places in general has always been a passion of mine. I'm a realistic person though and I do understand that getting an occupation that consists of these things is slim, but I can work hard to achieve attaining a job that includes some of the things I love to do daily.
What Kind of Person Do You See Yourself in 5 Years? 10 Years?
Where Is Christ in Your Life? Where Will Christ Fall in Your Future Vocation? What Do You Believe Is Your Vocation?
Christ will help me with my decision of my future vocation. I'm confused on what I want to do with my life right now, but I'm sure that God will send me on the right path.
I believe my vocation is whatever God chooses for me. It might be writing to inspire others, but it might also be in the medical field. Whatever it may be, it will be the right choice for me as Morgan Lewis because God has made it so that there is only one of me in the world. That's what's so unique about every human being: there is not one the same because of God's design.
God's design calls us to love and to love someone is a willed decision to dedicate oneself to someone for the good of another. Love involves giving a sincere gift of oneself to others. Through the sacraments and God's grace I can have a visibility spiritual life through loving others.
Theology of the Body has helped me learn this. God has created me to be such an individual and that I need to respect my body and privilege to my life and others' lives.
