Transparency Spark: Would you believe that when I was a child I didn’t think that I was or would ever be #beautiful?
People would tell me I was pretty but I often found it hard to believe. For years behind the glasses and braces after being teased most of my life I had to fight within to see and even find my own #beauty. The struggle was real but I was victorious. #GodDidIt #WontHeDoIt
When I read the ugly duckling story as a child, I often thought, “That’s me!” One day I’m going to be a beautiful swan! I am so thankful for the realization in my adult life that I was always beautiful from the inside out. I wasn’t an ugly duckling that turned into a swan. I was already a swan from birth- beautifully and wonderfully made. #mentalfloss
I stopped subscribing to the looks in magazines, and the outside voices and finally subscribed to myself. That took courage and self acceptance. I can smile through the pains of life because I trust God at this point in my life more than I ever have. That’s what makes me beautiful now. When I am told that by the one I love that he feels I am beautiful it now means so much more and touches my soul because I can believe it as the truth. My thank you is truly heart felt. #growth
God has brought me through the unimaginable over decades to a place of peace beyond even my own understanding. I walk each step of each day in faith that my life is a testimony of greatness and perseverance against all odds.
