Did you know that you’re beautiful? Yes, you! No, don’t turn around and look behind you. I’m talking to YOU! Yes, you! The one reading this blog right now. 🙂 I just wanted to tell you in case no one else did. God made you special…even with all of your so-called flaws. No one is perfect but God. Oh sure, some people can pull of the “perfect” vibe, but, each one of us have things about ourselves that we don’t like. When we sit alone and no one else is around, our insecurities have a way of oozing out to try to make us feel yucky. We all have things about our personality and/or appearance that we want to fix. And yeah, maybe there are some things we can work at to better ourselves as people or to spruce up our appearance and make us feel ‘cute’. But, if you let your insecurities get the best of you, then, you won’t shine like you were meant to. And you were DEFINITELY meant to SHINE!
Maybe somebody once told you that you weren’t pretty or handsome…or not as good-looking as someone else. Maybe somebody said you’d never amount to anything, or that you were stupid or pathetic or not talented enough. Maybe somebody told you that your nose was too big, or that you were too short, too tall, too fat or skinny, too dark or pale, or even that you smile too much. Maybe they even told you that you were wasting your time and there was no way that you would ever make it. LIES!!! These are all big, fat lies!
Here’s the TRUTH! You are SPECIAL, unique, gorgeous, talented, smart, brilliant, amazing, powerful, elegant, empathetic, caring, sweet, bold, fearless… You are LOVED with God’s everlasting love! And you were created with unique and beautiful qualities. You are so special and so important that God didn’t make anyone else exactly like you. Think about it. You’re the only you there is. And you have unique set of qualities, characteristics and attributes that make you who you are. It’s time to celebrate you. Shine, in spite of the nay sayers! Shine for all to see. You’re beautiful. ♥
