#WonderfullyMade

Do not dim your light, because you are wonderfully made.

Do you do sometimes convince yourself to be small to avoid attention?

I know I used to believe that I was not anyone worth knowing, therefore to avoid attention I would hide in my insecurity and dim the light that was inside of me.

It says in Palm 139, ‘I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful’.

I forget how wonderfully made I am and then dim my light. But God constantly convicts me, reveals to me how wonderful I am and the importance of sharing my gifts to help others.

I am not great at mental maths, but I do believe I am great with words. So I created a blog page last year and after a few posts I abandoned it because I was not sure on what to write.

But my heart has been consistently heavy, to share words. To spread light to myself and to others.

Furthermore, this blog post is to introduce me to you, I am wonderfully made not perfect.

I have come to the realisation that my characteristics require a greater being, bigger than you and I.

When I fail my essays and exams, when a family member dies, when I just feel unloved… I require God.

I believe we are created not to do this ‘life’ on our own, because it gets miserable!

There are times I can’t even get up from my bed or smile at others. But I know it is only by the Grace of God that I can be renewed, corrected everyday.

This is just what I believe.

Have a great time of day.

Stay Inspired, Stay Beautiful

Dear Self.

You are amazing and you are enough.

I know you feel like you are not as good as someone else, but change your attitude, people are not as good at being you as you are. We are all different beings, embrace that and not see it as your weakness. The problem is that you need to stop comparing yourself to people who were born differently from you.

Love yourself and all good things will follow. Well.. at least adapt to a positive mindset. Change your attitude.

Dear self, if you feel fear, hold on to the hands of confidence because fear steals your true, beautiful, funny character away. Believe in the great you and not what others think you should be.

Have all the self-confidence, with caution.

Dear Self, stay inspired, stay beautiful.

Own Zone

Know you, be firm on your feet.

This has been an important lesson for me because no one can look after you, the way you want to be looked after. It is clear that people can stab you in the back, well.. metaphorically speaking.

Already in the year, I have been let down by myself and by people who I trusted. No matter how much you trust a person, they will still disappoint you. It sucks.

But by the grace of God, I have remained strong and positive. Despite that I am currently writing in the pain I am experiencing, someone said, “bad days build better days”.
