And out of nowhere, I hear God say to me, Just be you. Nothing else, I am in love with you, I am pleased with you. I felt overwhelmed by the realization that I am enough, just as I am…..
Sometimes, with the struggles of our daily lives and everything around us we get too “caught up” with trying to be something we aren’t and forget who we are along the way. The last couple of months, I have been struggling with so much. Trying to find the answers, trying to figure it all out. At times I felt like God and my faith abandoned me. I started to lose hope in a lot of things. I know we all have been lost, even seen a lot of dark times in our lives. Let me tell you, the struggle is real, and I mean that in all honesty. Life is never easy by no means. Life can be beautiful and challenging all at the same time. But, hey that’s life right?! Sometimes the strongest among us are the ones who smile through silent pain, cry behind closed doors, and fight battles we know nothing about. I know I let out a good cry here and there and that’s okay. Letting out a good cry here and there doesn’t make me weak, it makes me real and human. Even moreso open and honest with you all by telling you all this, but I like to keep it real and 100% with you always.
Sometimes, we need to take a breath and realize, we need to love ourselves wholeheartedly always. At times, we can let society, the media, our circle of friends, colleagues, family whoever it is tell us what we need to be, who we should be and what we should be doing with our lives. No matter what anyone says, just be yourself. Don’t try to be something your not. Be authentically you. God created us to be unique individuals, and sometimes we need a reminder from time to time. We need to stop comparing ourselves to this person and that person and be comfortable with ourselves and who we are.
I know this is a constant struggle for all of us, myself included. Life isn’t always perfect. With social media ruling over us these days, there’s a constant need to strive for perfection. Just remember, looks can always be deceiving, and nothing is ever as perfect as it seems. And that’s ok, don’t strive for perfection, try and work through your struggles, learn and grow from it. Add value to your life and purpose that is more fruitful beyond measure. It’s all about perception and what you believe is perfect and right for you. Just remember, you are beautiful, kind, loving, unique, intelligent, humble, and amazing just the way you are. Never forget that. I too, have to remind myself of this all the time, so trust me you’re not alone. I hope this will encourage and motivate us all to never lose sight of who we are and what is important. And if we do, it’s these little reminders and words of wisdom from the big man up above speaking to us always. God’s always on our side watching over us and guiding us along the way. Let’s never forget him, our faith and all he has to show and tell us. No one is you and that is your power.
I’ll end by saying, keep your faith. I know it may not seem like it now but listen theres a message in the word always. This is my message to you today and always. Stay true to yourself, stay inspired, be empowered, have faith, never stop believing in yourself and never give up loves!!
