So What You're FAT...!
Before I knew my own power and strength, I undercover hated my fat body! Yup...you heard me right! I fell into the fat trap of being body shamed. I allowed societal norms to distort my thinking with the belief there was something wrong with me. The truth is, over 50% of the world’s population is overweight...fat...or obese. Beyond the stats I still felt ugly, unwanted and judged for being fat! I over dressed to hide skin, I was afraid to wear my arms out and I avoided eye contact with men and girl...you know I love a good lookin' man. However, coming to grips with my truth, I knew I had to change my unhealthy self-reflection if I was going to overcome the negative thoughts associated with being FAT. I low-key really want to slap the person who decided that "fat" was offensive and made fat shaming normal. No ma'am...no sir. Get out of here with that! We all have things that we are body conscious about. NO ONE IS PERFECT. NO ONE! Truth be told size has nothing to do with it.
It's been said if you change your mind...you will change your life! Welp, it’s true. The Bible tells us "So a man thinketh, so IS HE". Aren't you glad God was thinking about you and loved you so much that He made provision for you in His word to get you and keep you on the path of healthy thinking? What an awesome God! So not only do I get to choose my thoughts, I have the honor of helping others realize their God given POWER...! It keeps me honest and humble.
Becoming confident takes time. Building confidence can be done in many ways. Let me share a few thoughts with you:
1: Know and understand who you are. (What does God say about who you are?)
2. Learn and accept your purpose. (Do this quickly! Most likely you already know and have been running from it your whole life...or maybe that was just me. LOL)
3. Stay connected to positive people. (Cut off the haters & dead weight)
4. Always maintain a positive attitude.
5. Embrace Change.
6. Do what makes you happy daily (Learn what you like. Stop being passive).
7. Always look your best (No matter your size, jazz up! When you look good you feel good).
8. Have daily quite time (Center yourself and focus on what’s important for you).
9. Don't be afraid of the unknown (You will encounter some feelings and challenges along the way to building your confidence...go back to step 5 and keep moving fearlessly).
10. Repeat steps 1-9 as often as needed.
