You’re not pretty enough. Does that phrase sound familiar? For many of us, it’s a recurring echo in our minds each and every day – when we first wake up, when our hair just won’t fall right, when we can’t find a thing to wear, when we’re hanging out with friends, when we see a commercial of others looking so easy, breezy, beautiful, and again, and again and again. Maybe you’re not like me, and you don’t struggle with any of that at all. Maybe instead you can relate to one (or some) of these other lies we tell ourselves:
1. I’m not good enough
2. I’m unworthy of love
3. My past defines me
4. I’m a failure
5. I don’t have a purpose
6. I’m not talented
7. I’m not important
8. Everyone hates me
9. I’m not who I should have been
10. My life doesn’t matter
I’m here today to encourage you, as well as myself, to SET OURSELVES FREE from the lies that we allow to so easily entangle our seconds, minutes, hours and days.
You ARE beautiful. You ARE good enough. You ARE worthy of love. You ARE more than your past. You ARE NOT your failures. You DO have a distinct, specific purpose. You ARE talented. You ARE important. News flash…everyone DOESN’T hate you. You AREN’T defined by who you “should have been.” Your life DOES matter – so much, in fact, that other people’s lives depend on it. Don’t give up on yourself. You are here to love, serve and share goodness while you’re alive, and to me, that seems like a life that matters. A life that just might change the world. A life that is full of purpose.
Love and Hugs,
