I’m sure you all know where this title came from, “Love yourself or nobody will.” But the underlining message holds true in any situation. Self-love is universal, no matter what religion, race or size. If you’re not happy within, you will need external confirmation with your plans, decisions and etc. Success start with you believing in your own plans. It starts with having your own visions and making them happen.
Day 7 of my fast is a beautiful thing. Because of it, I wholeheartedly committed myself to a task and completed it. I stood behind something that I believed in no matter what the world thought.
Sometimes, you have to do just that – create the life you want, God willing, and go after your dreams. If you are unhappy with the woman in the mirror, make a change.
And no matter what, never put the key to your happiness in someone else’s pocket. I spent so many years allowing others to make me happy, even if they weren’t remotely worried about me. But now, I refuse to live for others and want to live for me, God willing.
For anyone who followed me through my fast, thanks for reading. Thanks for your support!
Here is a prayer:
Day 7: Lord, I thank you that I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
Notes: The closer I get to God, the more commitment it takes to stay grounded and I pray that I continue to trust in him on my path to success.
