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❤

Follow your passion, not the praise.

I tend to let the applause from people get in the way of why started this page in the first place. I told myself from the start, whether I inspire 1 person or 100, I’ll continue on with my journey. But some days I feel like I’m doing something wrong when I don’t get as many likes or lose followers and people message me negative things about my page or myself, but after speaking with my little sister this morning, she inspired this quote by telling me to “Follow my passion and not the praise”.

That hit home for me this morning. That I’ve been allowing the naysayers and the soul slayers deter me from sharing the work God is doing in my life. I’ve also let my pride and vanity hinder my growth by some times making it about myself and not about God.

So I wanted to share a little message of encouragement to anyone that has started a new journey, on a mission, or just unsure where to start, to remember that we “can do all things through Christ who strengthens us” (Philippians 4:13) and no matter what, let that praise go to God. Let your story be for His glory. “For if anyone thinks he is something, when he is nothing, he deceives himself.” (Galatians 6:3). We are nothing without God. ❤🙌
