A Different Kind Of Beautiful
Be Your Own Kind Of Beautiful
Sometimes I struggle with the way God has formed me, with the way he has fashioned me and the way he has made me. I understand that he is the greatest artist and fashioner of all time. But sometimes I ask him why he made me like this, and not like the girl across the street or blonde girl at church. I wonder how different my life would be if I were made different, shorter, thinner, smaller boned..then what I am now. I wonder if I would have been more popular, if the guy I liked would have liked me back, and if I would have had all the self hate I went through as a young person.
As I step back now looking at my life I understand that my life would have been different. I would have had such a
different life then what I do now! Sitting here and thinking about it..I look outside at the sky and quietly say to my artist in heaven .."Thank you..thank you for making me this way. Thank you for my story, thank you for my struggles, thank you for my body." Because the truth is, I wouldn't be a plus size model right now if I were made any differently, I wouldn't be advocating for body image and helping girls with eating disorders, I wouldn't be helping to break the mold of "traditional" beauty if I were made even an inch shorter.
God knew the purpose he had for my life even before I was born and so he created me with my purpose in mind. If you are struggling with knowing your worth and value..or the body you have. Just remember this..God doesn't make mistakes. Everything he creates is perfect, everything he forms is flawless, and you are the masterpiece of the greatest fashion designer of all time.
