"Just doing me"

"Just doing me"; I heard myself make this statement today, and I said to myself "hmm-m-m-"  I realized this was true.  As women in life we tend to want to compare ourselves to other women.  whether it's clothes, hair, ministry, family, child rearing, homemaking, housekeeping, career.  But the bible says in 2 Cor 10:12:

For we dare not class ourselves or compare ourselves with those who commend themselves. But they, measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise.

If we use Jesus Christ as our standard, we will see that we could never measure up and that would free us up to just be ourselves and let Christ work through us.  It felt good making this statement "Just doing me".  Because I am finally at a place in my life where I really don't want to "be" like anybody else.  I like who I am, I actually enjoy who I am.  I love the person I am becoming more and more everyday.
