Just the way you are

I keep catching a glimpse of myself

On the windows, glass doors, mirrors

What more must I do

To make myself look worthwhile

 

I keep going back and forth

On the hallways and corridors

I keep putting makeup

On my face, cheeks and lips

I keep straightening my hair

Even though its almost burnt to crisp

What more must I do

To make myself look worthwhile

 

Aritzia, Michael Kors, Coach,

The latest trends and form fitting clothes

What more must I buy

To make myself look worthwhile

 

Skipping meals, eating less or eating more

It’s seems like an endless downward spiral of emotion

What more must I do to make myself worthwhile

 

Whatever you’ve been told

Just ignore,

Put your head up high,

Don’t let anyone tell you that you’re not enough,

Even yourself, because you are worthwhile

You are wonderfully and fearfully made

Just the way you are

You are worthwhile

You’re Beautiful!

I have seen this movie several times already, and it always touches my heart whenever I watch it. I recommend you watch this, its about Queen Esther and how she became queen. I completely adore Queen Esther and her story of courage and unfading beauty.

I just want to share this verse that is related to Queen Esther and the movie and to all women. I believe each girl out there should always remember this verse.

Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold jewelry or fine clothes. Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight.

1 Peter 3:3-5 

So many women focus on their outward appearance to make themselves attractive but they tend to neglect their inner self and how their character should grow and develop. It should be the other way around. Focus on the inner self- gentle and quiet spirit and the outward beauty will overflow from within. We should try to and start believing that we are beautiful inside and out. Even though it’s hard sometimes to look in the mirror each morning. Deep inside, you are beautiful, adorn yourself with a gentle and quiet spirit like Queen Esther.

In conclusion,

Thank you Lord Jesus for the reminder that I am beautiful first inside and that is more important to focus on the inner beauty than outwardly appearance. Help me to accept what I cannot change with myself and those I can change, help me to strive better and work on myself to become the best version of me. I pray in Jesus name, Amen.

You are Beautiful

beautiful

Being molded and sculpted

Aiming to be Barbie dolls

Even though It’s like being locked behind bars

Unrealistic Perception

Distorted view of oneself

No one is perfect

Perfection is a sickness of society

Why can’t you see

You are beautiful

Just the way you are

Freckles makes you unique

Chubby cheeks, Adorable!

Your laugh is one of a kind

Don’t worry with make up

Less is more

Don’t worry about others

Know that you are worthy

All you need

Is to believe in yourself

You are you

You are beautiful
