How do you see yourself? I mean really see yourself….
It’s no secret that as women we often go through those phases when we don’t really see ourselves the way we would like to. We sometimes get caught up in what society says our status should be or how society says we should look, but what I want you to do after reading this is really take a moment to think about how you view yourself. Not in comparison to anyone or anything, just you.
I titled this blog self “image” nation because I want anyone that feels they have to measure up to the next know that they are living in a false state of mind. It is all in your imagination if you think that who you are has to be equal to someone else based upon their place in life or how they look.
You have to be able to acknowledge that your divine purpose is to seek out why God created you just the way he did and on your journey in doing so, you will be fooled. Fooled into thinking that you are not adequate enough to accomplish any of your dreams by just being YOU.
You will be fooled into thinking that only by enhancing your physical features will you be as desirable as what society calls beautiful. You will be fooled into thinking that who you have grown to be is worthless or not capable of carrying herself in such a manner that a man can only dream of having a woman like you.
YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL….PERIOD.
Self love. That takes time and attention, but everyday you should be pouring into yourself some measure of self love. Wake up each day and know that no one will love you like you will. You set the bar right? It is your job to show outsiders your requirement of what it is to value you.
How you see and carry yourself should be a direct reflection of how you want others to view and value you. If you are constantly taking a way, or underestimating yourself, how can you expect others to truly see who you are. I encourage you to lose any false beliefs that your beauty is only skin deep. Please negate the idea that your power as a woman is fueled by the same oil as the next because it is not. You can only be driven by the model you were made to be and anything else just wont do.
Be without a doubt certain that this life you were a given was a blessing in itself and no one else can live it but you…so why would you ever want to alter or fall short of that. Your self “image”nation can be anything it wants to be, but it’s easiest being YOU.
Until next time,
Peace and Blessings
