Most women don’t like their reflection in the mirror, and that should not be! We tend to be our own worst critic, and we spend years comparing ourselves to others. “Oh, if only I looked like…” “Oh, if only I could be…” or the worst self-talk of all: “I’m not good enough…”
What do you think you can personally do to improve what you see? Have you ever thought that maybe, just maybe you were created exactly the way God wanted you to be? Media and magazines have us feeling like something is missing. Instead of stressing over what isn’t, why not embrace what is?
You and I were made in the image of God, in His likeness, so that makes us pretty special, don’t you agree? Women have been sold a bill of goods that no matter what we do, it’s not enough. Forget all that! You were created for a special purpose and God was very, very pleased the day you were born.
Make a list of all your strengths, then all your weaknesses. You can be honest with yourself, no one is going to see this list. Now focus on your greatest strength and write down what makes you strong in that area.
Give yourself a pat on the back, because more than likely you are a survivor! You have endured life’s challenges which somehow, you had no idea how, made you stronger. When you got blindsided by something you didn’t think you could handle, you made it through, didn’t you?
Beauty begins in the heart and travels to the whole body. The best dressed woman always wears a dazzling smile, walks with her head held high so her invisible tiara doesn’t slip, and keeps in mind that she can do anything she sets her mind to do, in spite of those normal obstacles that come her way! She embraces life, including those challenges she faces. She realizes the challenges are God way of stretching and strengthening her as He adds another jewel to her tiara.
Take another look in that mirror and tell the lady looking back at you that she is amazingly beautiful and the world is blessed to have her around!
