On Becoming

I am a hypocrite, I suppose. I admire qualities that I feel like I understand, that I think I understand. Character qualities…and yet, I do not embody them. I admire, when I am told to worship. I lack faith, when faith in this has proven itself to be true, to function properly. I lack commitment, when I know deep in my heart that commitment is necessary. That greater commitment leads to greater reward. Perhaps, as time progresses, the reiteration of my faith will cause it to grow. Yes, I will worship. I will no longer merely admire, but embody. I will be the character of the qualities I know. I will be, now is. I am the embodiment of the character I admire. I am not a hypocrite.
