I Used To....


Hate My Height- But now I embrace it,  walk with my head high every day, and can't wait to wear a dress to show off the long legs God Blessed me with.

Hate the Size of My Nose- But now I love it. It's not who I am, but it is a part of me that I will never change. It's how you know my brother is my brother and my sister is my sister. It runs in the (immediate) family and I wouldn't trade it in for any other shape or size nose!

Hate Being Skinny- But now I love the fact that I can eat anything I want and not gain much weight...and if I do and don't like it...I can lose it in a matter of days/weeks.

Hate that People Said I sounded like a "white girl"- Now I realize that those same people who said that were just IGNORANT and I could care less about their opinions. To this day I still cant figure out what a "white girl" sounds like

Hate my real hair- But now I love it. I prefer to wear my hair out more then to conceal it in braids in weave, now that I have the proper knowledge to get it to wear I want it to be..I love it more now then I ever did. (whether I'm relaxed or natural).

Loving yourself doesn't mean you are conceited or self-centered...it just means that YOU LOVE YOURSELF! I love everything about myself and I am grateful to have the confidence that I have today. There is still room for improvements which I strive to make everyday...but what some would call "flaws" are what I call my "gifts".

This post isn't to boast about myself, but to show that anyone can overcome their insecurities.

  1. How tall are you? I used to hate my height too. And when I was younger I was skinny and I hated that. Then I gained a lot of weight from all that late-night snacking in college and now I'm fighting to be back where I was lol.
