So I had this epiphany a couple weeks ago realizing what a great battle our daughters face. They live in a world based on comparison and perfectionism. They live in a world of instafame, filtered faces, photoshopped bodies, and who has the newest cell phone. Reality has taken a backseat, true beauty has been filtered out and things that are most important have been robbed from their lives. That day, as I was on the verge of tears putting on my bathing suit I had purchased last year when I no doubtably weighed a solid 15 pounds less I happened to glance at my 3 year old watching me. Her sweet face with chubby cheeks and solid little body perfectly made but very different than mine. In that mom...
I aim to be the best version of ME. I'm not perfect and I can never be. I have many flaws, I've done so many mistakes and some things I truly regret; I'm also sure that in the near future there'll be lots of disappointments and mistakes too but I won't be afraid. I won't let my fears and my past hold me back from what God wants me to be. I WILL EMBRACE ALL THE JOY, HAPPINESS, LOVE, HURTS, TRIALS, STRUGGLES, etc for I know that I am loved by God and no matter what, He will always be there to guide me... (Ps. 32:8) #thankyouGod
