I am beautiful.
I never really believed that phrase until a few years ago. Always heard it from my parents n some family but I always thought of myself as... Not pretty. Growing up being teased cuz I wasn't light skinned or cuz I had puffy hair or cuz I have big eyes or cuz I was skinny made me look at myself the way everyone else looked at me. Negatively.
It hindered the way I carried myself. I put on a good front but was never as confident as I pretended to be.
After my husband told me "I wish you could aee you the way I see you"
I realized I had to change my focus and turn off the awful tape replaying in my mind saying I wasn't beautiful.
Once I began reminding myself of how I am beautifully and wonderfully made, how I am made in God's image and how he dont make no junk 😉
I like what I see when I look in the mirror now. All the things I was teased about growing up are what I like about myself now. Still have my days where on not feeling me, but they are few and far between nowadays.
Thank God for changing the tape. 😊

Two months spent in Classroom with Professor Aivars Ozzolins helped me to learn so much about the Bible and how it is supposed to be preached. On the last day of class, I found myself in tears as the Professor read to us the words of Paul in
1 Corinthians 2:1-5 and they just rightly described how he taught us. He challenged us to think deeper, to see and preach Chrsit in every verse of the Bible and to always, always put the emphasis on what Christ did to humanity. Every classtime felt like a week of prayer session and we always left the class in amazement and with a new perspective.
Personally, he helped to see that Theology is not about only knowledge of the Bible and the use of "big words" but it is about my heart and How I feel about God. He has even made me to reconsider pursuing my degree in Applied Theology instead of Languages. I am grateful to God for the opportunity he has given me to put my heart in something (which I usually find hard to do) and actually love it and be proud of it.
I’m treat’n right. Hella yeah, we gonna be alright. (Okay where are my Mac Miller fans at??) I always forget how important it is to take care of myself. To eat what my body needs, do what my body needs and most of all care about my mentality and creativity. Take care of yourself Moon Babe 🌙💫
Something good is coming soon
