This morning after taking a shower, I looked at myself and thanked God for blessing me to look the way I look. I literally looked at my skin, skin tone, face, eyebrows, and thanked God for making me the way he did. I was thankful, not in comparison to someone else. I am not less or more beautiful than anyone, but that I was who I was.
In my journey to be thankful for this body, I realized I put up with a lot of crap because I forgot how beautiful I was. I snapped myself back together and said, "Jasmine, you don't have to take this shit! Do you not know who God created you to be?!"
He created you to be great!
To conquer lands!
To be his hands and feet in this land!
Not dull your shine for anyone!
It's crazy how you only need one look in the mirror to remember who God created you to be.
God is good y'all.
