Day Forty-Six: Just Be You

One of the hardest challenges in life is being you.

Stores sell products that tell you to change. Magazines flaunt pictures that want you to change. Friends may even tell you that this or that needs to change in order for you to be “okay”.

But here’s the truth: you don’t need to change.

You don’t need to be the woman on the magazine to be beautiful. You are beautiful.

You don’t need to own 200 pairs of designer shoes to obtain beauty.

You don’t need to buy the latest and greatest beauty enhancer, or buy into the continuous “self-improvement” cycle.

You don’t need to improve anymore; you just need to be you.

Today take the time to find out who “you” are. The you without the pressures. The you without the expectations. The you who is beautiful and perfect and unique.

Be you, and stop trying to be her.

Verse: “We do not dare to classify or compare ourselves with some who commend themselves. When they measure themselves by themselves and compare themselves with themselves, they are not wise.” (2 Corinthians 10:12)

  1. I lovde this post! It is exactly what my eyes have been opened to in the past few months.
    Commercials tell girls they need to be thinner, taller and prettier.
    We can only look “Fab” with such-and-such lipgloss or makeup.
    It gets very tiring after a while even watching as girls try to keep up with looking “Hot” and “Fab”

    And what is everygirls main goal of trying to improve their looks?
    To get attention, and thats where we all need to re-focus our goals.
    I used ot be on of those girls, doing anything and everything to stay “in”, then I relaized, stop trying to please people of the world, and focus on pleasing God, our father!
