Motivational Monday (Confidence)


The dictionary meaning is the belief in oneself and one’s powers or abilities; self-confidence; self-reliance; assurance. My definition is, believing what God has said about you and to not let anyone still your happiness. 

Having confidence is when you are able to look yourself in the mirror and to be happy with the way God created you! Whether it is having more hips, or booty, long or short hair, being black or white, or having more to love in your mid section. When you’re able to look yourself in the mirror and not care what anyone else has to say, that is when you have reached the true level of confidence my friend!

Confidence is something I struggled with for years, and at times I still do. I know that I am a beautiful person inside and outside, but for some odd reason I cannot shake the comments of the world around me! I have been doing some soul searching lately. I have been reading my bible and praying for guidance and direction. 

God has been revealing to me what he has put deep down inside of me all along. I am beautiful just the way he has created me! I am more than enough and I do not need anyone else approval to be okay with the woman I am and the woman I am becoming!

When God created me, he did not make any mistakes! I have come to love being black (despite society telling me otherwise). I have come to love my curves and my kinky hair! I love the woman I am today, and I will love who I am until the day that I am called home.

I know confidence is something a lot of people  struggle with in today’s society. I believe that is partly because, society tells us that we are not good enough. Society tells us that we should spend countless money to obtain a false look of what we see on television. Society has given us their definition of beauty!

I am here to tell society to KICK ROCKS! I want you to know that you are beautiful the way that God made you. If you want to lose weight, do it for you! Not because someone else told you to. If you want to rock your natural hair, go for it! God did not make any mistakes when he made you. Start holding your head high and walking like you’re somebody! Because the truth of the matter is, YOU ARE SOMEBODY!

You’re beautiful just the way you are my friend.

  1. Another beautiful post. I think being confident in the skin we are in is so hard sometimes. When we remember God doesn’t make mistakes and has created us in his image we can get that confidants back. Like you said, society can kick rocks, because there is only one person opinion that matters.


    1. Thanks! You’re absolutely right πŸ™‚

  2. I love this. Comparison really is the thief of joy! God created each of us the way we are for a reason — from our hair color, to our eye color, our gifts, our talents — and He is so very pleased with His creation! Only when we embrace our identity in Christ can we live the life God wants and has planned for us, and live it abundantly. Thank you for this reminder!

    1. You’re welcome Kristin! I often tell myself and others to stop comparing themselves to others.

  3. What a great message! So often I meet women who feel that their worth, value, beauty and even potential are dependant on what others think. It’s sad but understandable in today’s world. It seems that everwhere we look we are bombarded by society’s expectations and definitions of what it means to be successful, beautiful, and happy. When my confidence dips, I find it really helpful to practice gratitude and focus on my unique strengths.
    Thanks for the lovely reminder to embrace and love ourselves just the way we are. πŸ™‚

    1. You are more than welcome! And thanks for adding what you do to remind yourself of your worth and not what society tells you what your worth is πŸ™‚

  4. Always a great reminder! Thank you!
