To Be or Not To Be A Diva: Independence

My thoughts on Divas, Christianity, Women and Girls:
Some might think that a Diva IS independent.  After all, perhaps she has her own style and opinions.  I think that isn't really the case.  Most of what a Diva is and does, really is dependent on what others think of her.  We want our Blossoms to be independent.  Independent people take responsibility for themselves.  They think for themselves.  They act based on their own convictions - the eternal intangibles that are far more noble than a Hollywood appearance and personality.  They are concerned about leading their own life and minding their own business, which are concepts we find in the Bible.  Godly, independent people do not have a sense of entitlement.  They work hard to make things happen.  They take responsibility for their own actions in a way that sees the cause AND the effect in their lives.  They do not shrink back from the hard lessons they must learn.  Independence denotes a strength of character that reminds me of that verse, "Be strong and courageous..."  Independence is such an intangible, that I believe only the leading of the Holy Spirit can prompt us for ways to model for and train our children in this trait.  I believe He will be pleased by it.
