There was a time when…
- My self-talk was negative.
- I didn’t like the way I looked.
- I doubted myself and what I could do.
- I was fearful of being rejected so I didn’t speak up.
- I missed out on opportunities because I was overly concerned about what others thought and said about me.
- I pretended to be a strong confident woman on the outside but on the inside I was sad and lonely.
I gained a new perspective on life. I discovered who I truly was and my worth. That was completely new for me, because for most of my life I based my identity and worth on what others thought and said about me.
I realized that as my relationship deepened with God; the more empowered I became. I began to have the confidence to do things that I never thought I could do. Opportunities started to present itself in ways that I could have never imaged. But not only that, I started to have a voice. Not just any voice, but a voice that was bold; a voice that demanded and received attention.
- I have grown from being afraid to speak in front of a small group to speaking to the masses.
- I acknowledge my imperfections, but I also understand those are the things that make me unique.
- I’m no longer overly concerned about what others think or say. My focus is only on Jesus Christ.
- I can finally say that the person you see on the outside (smiling, confident, strong, caring, & God-fearing) is a true reflection of what’s on the inside.
