Learning to love ourselves for who we really are, is probably the hardest thing we will ever do. Everyday we at bombarded with images of what real beauty is; in the eyes of retailers. These images try as they may, to shape who we are, or who we want to become.
Sometimes there is a feeling of pain, to look at ourselves in the the mirror, admiring the beauty that stands before us. My hair is a mess, my face is not perfect, I’m too fat. I can guarantee there is not one of us who has not made one or more of those comments.
It’s easy to beat ourselves up. We somehow believe that if we do it to ourselves then it will protect us more from those who may do it to us. STOP! We are doing more harm to ourselves then others can do to us.
We forget to believe in ourselves. We forget to be kind to ourselves. We forget that we are perfect because we are creatures of God, designed in his image. Each image unique, each like a canvas. We are a portrait of beauty. We spend our time believing in others. For example we believe in Santa Claus, in God in other people. But we forget to believe in OURSELVES and all the beauty we have inside. We are the only ones who know who we are. We are the only ones that can bring ourselves happiness, we are the only ones that control our happiness.
In the spirit of Christmas, I would like to remind you how beautiful you are. ALL of you. Don’t ever let anyone tell you otherwise, don’t let anyone take away your belief in yourself.
Go to that mirror now, look in it and say these words out loud “I am Beautiful”. Yell it, scream it, say it.
To all my beautiful people Merry Christmas, and all the happiness and beauty in the world for a bright 2014.
