If you take the time to look through all of my posts through the years you’ll find growth. Growth mentally, emotionally, spiritually to the point where it resonates growth physically. This is something I give God Glory for like you could not imagine.
You don’t know like I know 🙌😭💃❤👑
And just as the millions of other women outside of little ole me I’ve struggled. I’ve struggled with my confidence. I’ve struggled with having positive body image. I’ve thought less of myself .. that may be an understatement. Today isn’t a huge epic event report blog. Today with it being “woman crush Wednesday ” I just want to take time to really reflect on some things. I feel like I’ve expounded on some of those things more than a few times so I won’t again. However, I want to share one Eureka I’ve finally found with in myself that is there is no “but” beautiful.
For years I’ve taken whispers and bad choice of words to heart. Things like “she can’t walk but she got a face doe. ” “she’s still pretty.” I could go on buuuut.. let’s not to save us some time eh? 😂
According to the inter of le nets beautiful is defined as follows 👇
pleasing the senses or mind aesthetically.
of a very high standard; excellent.
“the house had been left in beautiful order”
W what we must realize is that we are literally all beautiful. It’s not just something people say to make us feel better about ourselves even if that is very much their intention. We with no particular gender singled out are pleasing to the senses and are excellent beings. Those places where we are excellent may not be everyone’s cup of tea and that is okay. However, that does not take away nor add to our excellence. It is not defined by who agrees with it. It is defined by it’s mere being and it’s creator. In two days it will make 4 months since I was crowned Ms. Wheelchair Alabama-America 2017 and though I am considered to now be a role model I am not not oblivious to the fact this is also a growth experience for myself.
ChcjdjThe kind of excellence any and everyone could recognize. ❤ we must take the necessary steps to recognize our beauty ourselves because that is what’s most important. Last year I purchased Nick andcKanae Vujicic’s book Love Without Limits and it really helped me to understand that there’s some one acknowledging what comes with a person living with a disability faces when it comes to datindating and finding true love. I feel like the books teaching was reinforced on some level meeting the Burrows.
s. Dominique Dillard is a licensed counselor and CEO at Speak Life : I Am Greatness 501c3 at which Purity Camp I will be speaking at. This womans story is beautiful. It provides hope and comfort and the fact that she reaches back to youth is definitely excellent.
The moral of the story is were all beautiful in the sight of God and that only sounds cheesy when we are not in our own eyes and allow the word of others to hold a bit too much weight. Not only for us women but for men ascwell. Whether you’re someone’s preference or not is not a huge deal because that simply means that they’re not for you and you’re not for them. This does not have to involve slander, only an understanding. This post is also a sort of ode to my the release of my new book “Sister, How Are You?” . This book is a collective of sisterly love, poetry, women’s mental health, and affirmation. It is available on amazon and amazon kindle. We have so much in common with others that we deal with alone. Let us celebrate, war, and cry together. To every woman reading this I love you!
