Today I want you to look yourself in the mirror and say:
"I love me, I am beautiful, I am smart, I am strong."
I can honestly say that some days there is a great battle between my confidence and insecurities. My confidence being that I know what I am capable of, I know that I am a valuable person, I have gifts and talents, I'm pretty amazing when you get to know me.
My insecurities reflect on my situation that for some reason I was not good enough and not accepted as a woman of color. I know I can be so much more. What happened to my fun and outgoing self? I have stretch marks now, am I still as beautiful as I was before?
I try to remind myself that it won't always be this bad, but the good being that I have my son to love on, oh, and his smiles, just priceless.
The message today, love yourself. Know that you are worthy and beautiful. Work on your healing with yourself and heal the wounds of a broken heart, and pray for strength to forgive and have a clean heart.
This healing is crucial for yourself, your child, and if it be your desire, your future husband. We have to be healed so that we can allow someone to love us again.
Keep your head up.
