Life is a Journey

I’ve called myself a lot of things in my life. Lutheran. Quaker. Follower of Jesus. Non-Denominational. I don’t want to talk about it. Not religious. And finally, Atheist.

And ya know, I’m the happiest as an Atheist. I have the most self-esteem. I have the most meaningful relationships.  I feel the most secure with my place in the world.

I can finally stop answering the question about how a Christian and an Atheist can date. I can stop justifying why I can have premarital and stand up for positive sexuality.   I can put the people who matter most first. I can spend more time laughing and talking with my friends and family.   I can be more myself.  I’m constantly overwhelmed with the new meaning my life has.

But from many people, I feel the stereotype that because I am a nice, bubbly, cute twenty something girl from Michigan that I’m a conservative Christian. And that’s not the case at all. I don’t want to just allow people to go along that. I’m proud of who I am and I’m proud to call myself an atheist.
