You Are Naturally Amazing!

"You are who you say you are! Feed yourself negatively, you will view yourself negatively."

I believe Indie Arie said it best when she wrote, "I am not my hair, I am not this skin, but the soul that lives within." Whew! I wish I had coined that!! That statement is so true to what I have come to believe!  It truly speaks volumes!! In whatever state I'm in I've learned to be content! Whether I have no hair or hair down my back, a size 4 or a size 16, God made me beautiful! And the same goes for YOU! 

 You are a Queen in your own right!

I have not always thought this way. It has been a process!
 But, once you know who you are, there is no turning back to your old mentality, and no one can tell you otherwise!

Early in my life I often felt like I wasn't good enough. I felt as though I was ugly and everything about me just seemed to be all-wrong. I would literally walk pass the every mirror I came in contact with because I just knew that what looked back at me was not beautiful in my eyes. Others would tell me I looked nice or that I was pretty (usually older people) and I just did not believe them. In my mind I felt they just felt they had to say that.. When I looked at myself I saw someone that was dark-skinned, thick, and imperfect in every way! But, as I grew older I began to see myself as God sees me;
Fearfully and Wonderfully made!

God completely changed my whole perspective on how I view others and myself. No longer do I view beauty as something that is one-sided, but that has layers! EVERYONE is beautiful in their own way because God created them to be. After God created everything that was made he said it was good, so who am I to think or say otherwise.

So to you out there who may feel like you are too dark, or too light, that you are too fat, too this or that….. .. If you were anything other than what you are, you wouldn’t be God's special creation. To you who may feel like you are too short, God didn't want you to be as tall as others.. He likes when you have to look up. To those who may feel like you are not smart enough, God loves that you need his wisdom. And lastly for those who feel that you are nothing, understand that that is only possible without him! So Love the skin you’re in! Your imperfections are Perfect because God did them on Purpose!!

You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn't serve the world. There's nothing enlightening about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone!!!

Your are Naturally
` Mary
