Well, you are! Whether you believe me or not, just say it out loud-
I hope you believe it. There was a long time when I didn’t believe it. I didn’t believe I was beautiful and I thought those who told me so were lying. I thought that, because of my fat, because of my acne, because of my flat feet, because of lips, I was ugly. I have since changed my mind about my ugly, and I did so because deep down I knew that I wasn’t supposed to live my life lamenting my body, my face, my hair, etc. I acknowledged that truth and slowly changed my perspective on my imperfect me. As a result, I’ve become empowered and can’t help but to do what I can to empower the lives of others.
I’m so committed to helping others recognize and embrace their beauty. I’m so committed to sharing my shine and helping you raise yours. I’ll admit that there are days when I doubt whether I should commit myself to this, but then I’ll come across something or someone that affirms what I’m here to do. Two things I want to share with you:
Yes, you can be missing an arm and be glamorous. Yes, plus-sized bodies are as fierce as anyone’s.
This features a cancer patient who provides a beautiful testimony to the power of our spirit and the power of love, from your loved ones and to yourself. It’s a gorgeous display of loving your body and yourself despite your circumstances. Watch and be inspired. (A bit on NSFW side, be warned).
If you need help changing your mind about your ugly, I can help. I just decided that my next blog post will be about that! Please stay tuned. Please also say out loud –
