But is it real?

These days, you can’t say nothing real without being labelled a hater, jealous or judgemental.

I had a conversation with someone who promotes “self love” but was wanting plastic surgery because she didnt like the way her nose was.

If you know me, I am always encouraging women around me to embrace what they have and not to allow what society says is beautiful effect the way they see themselves and I will tell you what I really feel if you’re asking me for advice.

Now, all I said was – “how you going to promote self love when you don’t even love yourself?”

She got really upset with me and said that I sound like those haters and I’m just being judgemental.
And that I “don’t understand”.

Now maybe she’s right? But I really feel that’s a valid question?

It’s easy to tell people to love themself when you’ve got fake boobs, fake butt etc but what message are you sending our younger generations?

Are we moulding ourselves to become these perfect looking beings while we’re wasting away and broken on the inside?

I’m tired of seeing the same look on social media.

Everybody looking like clones.
Everybody wanting to look the same.

Afraid of being different from the crowd.
Ashamed of having no likes or comments saying how hot or beautiful they are.

It’s a sham.
It ain’t real.

And I know people will hate me for this but I’m not going to encourage cutting up your temples to be worshiped by others.

Trust me when I say, cutting your nose up won’t fix the real issue.

You will keep finding things that you hate about yourself and keep cutting up or changing the way you look until you’re a totally different person to who God intended you to be then you’ll realise, it’s too late to go back.

You gotta find the root to these weeds killing your growth sisters!

You have to appreciate what you have and acknowledge that you don’t have to be everything to everyone else, you just have to mean something to yourself and have enough confidence to know that you were fearfully and wonderfully made.

Bless up❤

X’s and Y’s.

I’ve had a few request for me to share my thoughts about being friends with “exes” – the women who have been involved with the man you are currently with or a man you have been involved with.
 
My thing is this – I had no part in what has happened before me or what will happen after me, so there is no reason for me to hate these women.
 
So if you want to be friends then why not? but in saying that, you don’t have to go out of your way to be friends with them either.
 
When you’re secure in who you are, and what you stand for, the beauty, success or reputation of another women should not intimidate you, nor should it make you feel unworthy of being the “right” woman for your man.
 
When you stop seeing life as a competition and start seeing it as an opportunity to share the amazing things God has done for you and what He can do for others, you’re focus shifts from frivolous matters like the “X’s”, to searching for more important issues like the “Y’s”.
 
Like why have the cries of the West Papuan people still haven’t been heard? #FreeWestPapua
 
Why are there more and more children diagnosed with #AUSTISM each year and still no known cause?
 
Why are we losing so many kids to #SUICIDE?
 
These things become paramount and wake my spirit up.
Not exes, not petty wars over whose better than who.
 
Real life problems that people have no choice in.
 
You have a choice to be friends or not with “exes”, it really ain’t that deep.
 
So you either move on or dwell in unnecessary drama.
 
But my advice is to you, is choose peace over pride every time✌️

Purpose.

I asked myself : “What’s the purpose of my page? what makes it better than the rest?”

I answered : “Who said I was trying to be better than the rest? Why can’t we all be the best?

Why does everything in life have to be a game, where there are winners and losers?

I’m all about elevation, celebration and salvation.

My purpose is to kill satan’s lies and hate with God’s truth and love. I don’t care about likes and follows. I care that someone believes in being saved by the grace of God and smiling at the words of my post, without me trying to do the most.

I want to be the voice of the unheard, the overlooked, the unappreciated.

I want to create a space for Christian women to uplift eachother and share the amazing things God is doing in their lives.

That is my truth, my whole truth and nothing but the truth 🌻

Her beauty is rare.

For my mama:

Her beauty isn’t one that needs to blend in, nor does it need to stand out. It’s a beauty that she needs to believe, one that she never wants to doubt. A beauty that can’t be seen with your eyes, but can be felt in your soul. A beauty that doesn’t need confirmation or approval, for her to feel whole. Self love is the essence, wrapped in confidence and strength, and God is her focus, from the first commandment, to the tenth. So if you ever come across a beauty so courageous and so rare, know that she is more valuable than any diamond that you will ever come to wear.

Save some compliments for yourself.

Too many of us are quick to give them out, yet we save the hate and doubt for ourselves.

Speak love into your being.

No matter how much you hate your nose or the way your thighs touch or the way you can’t look or live up to society’s expectations of “beauty”,
protect your heart.

Your heart is where the true essence of your beauty lies.

What you choose to observe with your eyes, what you choose to hear with your ears, what you choose to believe in your mind and what you choose to absorb into your being, can potentially seep into your heart and mould you into a beauty or a beast.

So be careful what you allow or put up with in your life. Surround yourself with the lovers, the nice people, the wise, the caring, the believers.

You are what you speak 💖

“Do not let your adorning be the outward adorning of braiding the hair, wearing gold, or putting on fine clothing. But let it be the hidden nature of the heart, that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God.” – 1 Peter 3:3-4.

Sitting at 28 years old, I am yet to have met a woman that doesn’t want to be beautiful. When I say beautiful, I don’t just mean the outer shell, the vessel that carries our true essence, but beautiful in the way we love, the way we speak, and the way we treat others. The real heart and true core of our souls.

Does that mean there aren’t any women out there who don’t care about being beautiful? I don’t know, because I can only speak on the women I have met or encountered in my short yet interesting journey through life. But even those women, are only a small portion of the billions of women in this world. So while reading this, bare in mind that this is about my experience with women, not yours, not hers, but mine.

Too many of our women are falling into the traps of today’s culture. A culture that goes against what our Heavenly Father would want for his daughters. A culture that has allowed the artificial and the superficial define what’s hot and what’s not.

So what you’re about to read are my 3 beauty tips that I encourage all women to think about or apply as “make-up” in their life.

Exercise:

Most women these days are always on the hunt for the easiest and fastest ways to lose weight. Whether it be drinking the latest detox teas & eating paleo diets, to waist trainers and wraps. Sadly some turn to extreme measures like liposuction and bulimia.

But exercising is not only good for you physically, it’s also vital to help sustain your health mentally and emotionally. And that’s where “energize” comes in.

Energize:

Having the right energy is essential for your well being. If your energy is negative, then you’ll attract negative energy, but if your energy is positive, then you attract positive energy. Sounds so simple, yet so many people don’t get it.

We all have different ways of maintaining our energy levels. Some people like to meditate, others visit psychiatrist but I like to pray.

Praying is the confidence we have in appproaching God, and knowing that whatever we ask of Him, it’s taken care of, only if it’s according to His will. So it gives me peace to know that whenever something doesn’t work out, I know God has other plans for me. I don’t waste no more time thinking of the shoulda, woulda, coulda’s, instead I focus on everything that’s going right in my life. So don’t be angry at God when things don’t go your way or ask Him to do this for you then you’ll do this for Him. It’s important to remember that God gives us love with benefits, so we shouldn’t serve Him with conditions.

Moisterize:

As someone who has had eczema her whole life, I think this tip is mainly for myself plus it rhymed lol but I did want to touch on the importance of being able to love the skin you’re in. I myself am not a big make up fan, and I’m not saying that anyone that wears make up is ugly, but I feel I look better without it. I’m not conceited, I just prefer my natural look to wearing make up. And I’m sorry to say this, but everybody is starting to look the same to me. The eyebrows, the whiteness under the eyes. We’re losing our originality, our independance in the way we look. I have family members and friends who can’t leave the house without make up and it makes me sad because they’re the most gorgeous women I know! Make up is great to enhance our features, but it’s used as an armour for some to hide behind. Embrace your flaws ladies! It’s so liberating to love yourself with no conditions! Don’t wait until you’ve lost 10 kgs or when you’ve got your face beat. Love yourself the way you want to be loved. Don’t wait for validation or praise from those around you, know that God made you and He makes no mistakes. Dress yourself with dignity and strength and have no fear for the future, for you are fearfully and wonderfully made.
