This journey causes me to look at myself. I did not realize the many facets of being me nor did I realize that becoming healthy and whole would cause me to confront myself. I thought this was about losing weight which would restore better health to me. Now I am beginning to see the inner me changing as well. Changing because when I started losing, I began to see that I was hiding. And I began to see what I was hiding. And why...
Now that I am no longer hiding, I have to see myself as beautiful, really beautiful, and cute too! Not only that, but it is great to be able to say that I am beautiful, really beautiful and cute too! Also, it does not mean that I am conceited or self absorbed, I am just beautiful.
I was hiding because I wanted to be liked so if my looks were a non-issue, then people would like me. But guess what? Those same people could be beautiful and they were OK with that. Why can't I be OK with it? Guess What?
The reward of being me is that I am able to inspire, encourage and uplift others. They are not even concerned about the outer me, they are receiving the gift of GOD within me.
Oh sure, there are others, even among us, that remind me that I am not accepted and I am grateful for them. I am not ignorant to what they do, I choose to ignore it. Powerfully and peacefully, I keep being uniquely me!
So today, I flaunt the inner me, the GOD in me. I don't apologize for being uniquely me, I celebrate it! The reward is that GOD blesses me to continue in my destiny: the track of life prepared just for me, with duties, responsibilities and blessings chosen by HIM!
To GOD be the Glory!!! Be about being... Uniquely You!
