I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well. – psalm 139:14
This statement speaks volumes about our uniqueness, powers, abilities, talents,…and the fact that we are beautiful! Yes you marvellous. With this truth, I can’t help but wonder why so many of us don’t love ourselves. When we look at our lives all we tend to notice are the faults, what we lack, some of us in expressing our self-hatred, we abuse our bodies and minds. We fail to realise as zig Ziglar said, “It’s true if you take care of your car, it will take you places, and if you take care of your self-image, it will take you places too.”
Folks, you are fearfully and wonderfully made. Inside you is the power to turn a minus into a plus. Learn to love yourself. “You will make a lousy anybody else, but you are the best “you” in existence.”
Once you accept and love yourself, it isn’t imperative that others accept you. Angelo Patri said “Nobody is so miserable as he who longs to be somebody and something other than the person he is in body and mind.”
Be yourself. Nobody wants a phony. Nobody wants a counterfeit note or coin..not even you!
