Hey there! It’s so important to remember that being yourself is the most important thing…
Confidence also comes from knowing who we are in Christ. When we understand our identity as children of God, it becomes easier to let go of the need for approval from others and to stand firm in who we are.
I recently went through a bad breakup — but not in the way that you think…
It was a relationship that took years to grow and nourish, taking the time to discover all the intricate things making up who we are. It felt like I knew everything there was to love about this person, but then somehow, I found myself questioning whether I ever fully knew this person at all.
This person who once made me feel so much love left me in a season of mystery and confusion.
This person…was me.
The girl looking back at me in these pictures is not the girl I see every day when looking in the mirror, but in 2022, I’m learning to merge the two.
There is only one of you. Your experiences, both good and bad, are all the beautiful things that make you, you. One of the greatest things you can do is own it.
This was and still is my message…so I never considered that sharing this message now — a few sizes smaller — would alienate some of the people I’ve connected to the most. This was like a dagger to my heart — did my message ever truly matter? Or was I just another face wearing nice clothes? 💔
There’s this myth that plus size bodies shouldn’t wear bright colors, as it brings unnecessary attention to our bodies. I definitely fell victim to this way of thinking, that I am big enough, I don’t need any added attention. However, I’ve learned that this couldn’t be any further from the truth!
