You are valuable.  You are amazing. You are incredible. You sparkle. You are beautiful. You are one of a kind. You are gifted.  You are talented. You are a reflection of God’s image. You are God’s best.

I know that life could be different if you drove the car that someone else owns.  Sure, you could travel to more places if you had a few more zeros (okay, a lot more zeros) in your bank account.  Of course, you could wear that dress with the low back if you were a few sizes smaller.  

You could do so many more things, and life could be much different if things were a little different in your life…but, you’ve been given the life that you have.  Contrary to what you see on the outside, God thinks your life is absolutely amazing.  He thinks you are breathtakingly gorgeous! He thinks your smile is perfect and your curves are mag-nee-feek! *French accent*!  So, do you really wanna be someone else?

Spend time learning to appreciate and value your life.  Embrace the person you are from the inside out.  When you do that, people and things become drawn to you like a magnet. They become drawn to the light that you exude.  Most of all, you become the person who God created you to be.

Just be you. Nothing can substitute a woman who knows who she is and is confident being her.  Be you–it’s the most beautiful thing about you.

    What a great analogy on how life would be different if we drove someone else’s car. It’s such a true statement thinking about it. When we are in the steering wheel of another’s car, the is a sense if fear and not feeling comfortable. This is because one knows it is not his or hers hence it can’t be driven as desired to avoid damage etc. This is exactly the same when we are not following our own dreams and visions. Once one finds who he or she is, one is then able to own it and ride in it comfortably without fear because its yours ” passion/gift” given by God!!!

      Amen Rozzy 🙂 Like you said, we just have to learn how to own it. The sooner we own it the sooner we will experience the fullness of what God has for us.
