I believe in God, the Father Almighty,
Creator of Heaven and earth;
and in Jesus Christ, His only Son Our Lord,
Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried.
He descended into Hell; the third day He rose again from the dead;
He ascended into Heaven, and sitteth at the right hand of God, the Father almighty; from thence He shall come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy Catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body and life everlasting.
The Apostle’s creed is one of the many prayers that reminds me how beautiful I am! Today we celebrate the Ascension of Christ into Heaven. As you have any struggles in your life lean on this amazing prayer to remind you that Christ did all He did for us so we too can ascend from the depths of our own sins, fears, weaknesses….and so much more!
Thus I wanted to follow up from last weeks posting about Dysmorphic Disorder. I wanted to share with all of you why I am so passionate about it!
Dysmorphic Disorder is one of the many things that have molded me to be the WARRIOR WOMAN I am today!
Growing up I always knew my minds eye about my body wasn’t quite right but I trusted and had faith that what I “saw” was not true. I trusted that God doesn’t make junk. but….it hasn’t always been easy. Even with a great faith and great trust and belief…I still would have moments.
And still do from time to time…the difference is now being 41….the moments are so far and few in-between than what they were when I was 13…15…17….21….25….30….
Knowing that I am beautiful…I am healthy…yet having moments of not feeling just right.
As people would comment about how thin I was the more self conscious I became. The more I wanted not be noticed. After my hysterectomy I probably pushed myself my hardest because after all if I couldn’t have any more children what did it matter what I looked like. I became so lean that I could have been in some of those competitions Maddy Moon did and talks about….but it wasn’t what my body wanted to naturally be. I may have looked “good”…but I wasn’t healthy…Mind, Body, or Soul!!!
This is where GIRLS GONE STRONG has been amazing for me! Reminding me how beautiful we all are. Reminding me to walk the walk I talk!
He shows me how to grow, learn, and heal.
Therefore giving me the opportunity to be the best example to my daughter of what it means to be a wonderful warrior woman.
hugs, prayers, and lots of blessings,
