When life happens, it happens.
It comes at you full force.
Often it takes no names, can be uncomfortable and the only thing you can do is pray your way through it.
Personally, I have had my share of those moments lately. Not even gonna lie...I have been eating my way through some of it. Comfort foods are my jam and while it's not a lot, I have gained the freshman 15 and hunni...I'm far from a freshman.
So when I saw these photos, I almost tossed them. It was a confidence check for sure. I immediately thought of photo shopping my sides and then I literally said out loud...
Girl, stop trippin.
I rebuke the agenda setting that created the false image of beauty inside of me. Not only would that be a fake concept of who I am at this current moment, there is absolutely nothing wrong with some curves bay-be.
There is also nothing wrong with being in a period of uncertainty. As a matter of fact, the uncomfortable times are the ones that shape you the most. Praise God for what He is doing in and around you. You are growing in ways that you can't even imagine. Without struggle, there truly is no progress. Best believe you will be stronger on the other side.
Consider it pure joy, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. |James 1:2-3|
Will I lose the weight, probably. But the lesson is that weight shouldn't dictate how we feel about ourselves and nor should the circumstances around us.
So...no matter what you or your body is going through remember who you are, who He created you to be, stand tall and roll on!
