Adjust your crown.

When you look in the mirror, what do you see? Do you compare and complain about certain areas of your body not meeting the world’s standards? Do you criticize yourself more than you celebrate the person you are? What do you really think about yourself? Do you truly accept yourself, or do you only accept yourself with a filter, designer fashion and all the things of the world that people covet?
Do you dislike your imperfections because the media’s filled with perfectionist? Do you think that it doesn’t really matter what you think?
Let me tell you something my dear friend. Your struggle to love yourself will remain a burden to you if you continue to try to live up to the world’s standards of who’s acceptable. If you look in the mirror and only see that model on social media, how will you ever see yourself?
If you’re only seeing other people, their relationships, accomplishments, or possessions, when will you ever see how blessed you are?
When will you see your true beauty? When will you see how good you’ve got it? Do me a favor. Every time you want to complain about not having what you or the world considers the best of something, thank God that you have what you have, instead.
Gratefulness is a major key to inner peace and self love. If you can’t change something about yourself, embrace it, because some people change what they think was their problem, only to find out that their issues are more than skin deep.
It’s rarely about what’s on the surface, and more about what’s in your heart. It’s time to adjust your crown. The world expects you to maintain a house, maintain a six or seven figure job, raise perfect kids, marry well, be a socialite, have the perfect face and a snatched waist, oh let’s not forget a nice bottom.
Wait, while you’re at it, put on a cape and be sure to save the day… EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.
It’s too much, sis…
You’re trying to keep up with what other people require of you. No wonder you hate yourself… You have no peace because you’re hearing everyone else’s voices. Tell your mind, “Peace be still.” It’s time to quiet your mind so that you hear the voice of the only ONE who truly matters.
He thinks you’re all that, even when you’re a hot mess. He loves you so much that even when you didn’t know Him, He died for you. He calls you blessed. He calls your children, their children and their children blessed. He says, you’re powerful.
He calls you many great things, but what matters most is He calls you by name, and says, you are His! He loves you! Imperfections and all. Perfection is an illusion.
Embrace your realness and then love it, because God does! Trying to keep up with the world standards of what you should look like and who you should be isn’t being a superhero. Embracing who you are and loving how and who God created you to be, now that’s a real super power! Adjust your crown. Love you! 🥰
P.S.
Remember, having it all means being grateful for what you’ve got. 🙏🏾
