Happy Being Me...
Monday, October 31, 2011
You know, I have been looking through some of my old picture online, and I can't believe that this beautiful, troubled girl on the otherside of the computer screen used to be me. I mean, I can only look in amazement as I faintly remember the pain she used to go through everyday, and what amazes me more is that it was self-inflicted. She called herself "fat" and "ugly" and "stupid" and why? She was creative, strong, lovely, and vibrant - she just didn't know it yet. When I look at the woman that she's become now, I am PROUD. It's not just the physical evolution, but, most importantly, it's the MENTAL evolution that makes me cry with joy. She is STRONG, and she KNOWS it. She is BEAUTIFUL, and she KNOWS it. She is capable of LOVING OTHERS, and she feels it. She knows that her words have the power to heal others, and she uses them to do so . She knows that she is worthy of love, peace, and happiness, and she tries her best to spread that to others. She no longer degrades herself with harsh words and deeds; she loves HERSELF. She loves OTHERS. She loves He that created all things, and she thanks him everyday.
Please hear this: Right now, you may be struggling. You may think that you are FAT, or UGLY or even STUPID, but please know this - YOU ARE NOT. YOU ARE WORTHY. YOU ARE STRONG. YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL. YOU ARE HUMAN....all of us get into situations and think, "How did I allow myself to get here?" However, the beauty of being you is that you CAN change things; almost nothing is irreversible. You can lose the weight and win this battle, but it's going to take more than the reflection in the mirror, or the pictures to change that. You have to realize that YOU ARE WORTH IT in every way. I now know that I am :-)
