The sale has defined me. It has stolen my hope and killed my peace. It has turned great days into miserable ones. It has turned my joy into torment. It has defeated me. And I do NOT like being defeated...
When you hate yourself, hate your body, hate your life, you won’t do what is good for you. You won’t pursue what is good, noble, pure and praiseworthy. You may start out with good intentions, but self-hate will always self-sabotage. It's time to put an END to that self-hate!
There is nothing more beautiful, more captivating, more amazing than the freedom to be who God created you to be. So be you. Be totally and completely, 100%, unapologetically you.
Sometimes it's easy to forget to acknowledge your progress. We get so caught up in the fact that we're just not where we want to be, and we forget to celebrate how far we've come. But something really powerful happens when you celebrate your progress!
To YOU, the beautiful, amazing, talented, unique, strong, confident, loving, intelligent, graceful, funny, generous, lovely, compassionate, gorgeous woman: Do not be ashamed of your body. Don't you DARE!
How do you talk to yourself? What kind of words do you use? Do you encourage yourself, or do you tear yourself down? Do you push yourself to become better, or do you hold yourself back?
The number on the scale does not define you. That number cannot possibly tell you who you are, or who you’re not. That number does not determine your worth. That number is not your identity. You are so much more than that.
"You are beautiful." How do you feel when you hear those words? Do you believe them? I didn't...until now.
