I'm a little ashamed to admit that this pic (amongst others) are in a folder on my desktop called "self goals." And why do you think said folder is titled that way? You guessed it. Because I'm skinny and happy looking. Isn't that all we want in life?
I kid, I kid! I want a lot more out of life, but I don't mind
Part of it is that years ago God showed me a picture of that future me, and a deep sense of peace came over me. I knew that if I just took this health journey step by step I'd get there. I'd be her--- the girl in my vision that had confidence to speak up for the underdog because I was so deeply assured of my own worth and lovableness.
I guess the sum of it is that I realized my health matters to me because it means I'm able to live with the passion I was designed for--- and nothing less.
The crazy thing is--- skinny or not, I am that girl. I'm passionate. I'm caring. I'm generous. And here's the clincher-- I'm lovable. Skinny or not.
One of the things that reminds me of my worth in the Bible. Here are some of my fave snippets from Proverbs 31 in The Message Bible...
She’s up before dawn, preparing breakfast for her family and organizing her day.
She senses the worth of her work, is in no hurry to call it quits for the day.
She’s quick to assist anyone in need, reaches out to help the poor.
When she speaks she has something worthwhile to say, and she always says it kindly.
...and the best line:
Give her everything she deserves!
Why is being healthy important to you?? Any goals we can encourage you in?
Love you all!
