When you know your value and your purpose, you possess a strength at your core that makes you shine to others. It doesn’t matter how much you have in the bank, what designers labels you have or how big your house is. Your value and purpose that is within you is connected to a higher source, for me that is God. I know my why. I’m here to serve. To serve you as a writer and blogger to show that no matter what your size is, your age, hair texture or anything else, you have the confidence that has been placed in you to walk in the purpose that God has especially for you.
I’m here to serve those who can use my talents and skills to help them get to the next level in their lives. I ask God everyday to use me for His glory. To not be proud or boastful but remain humble as I walk this journey, praying that the holy spirit guides my every step.
I talk about purpose and value because once you know your “why”, there is this confidence that will forever be with you. The confidence that I have in plus size fashion allows me to showcase the beauty of being positive of the way you look and not compare yourself to the next person. I could easily be ashamed to be a size 22/24 when I see friends, family and other bloggers that are smaller, but I’ve learned that when I compare myself to someone else, I’m not being authentic to who God has made me.
Like the mural in the photos, I started off as a blank canvas but with every brush stroke another layer of my being was added and although I know that I’m a masterpiece, my canvas still has much more painting to be done, but just like this mural, I will someday step back and look in amazement at the beauty of all that God has done in my life.
Your masterpiece is beautiful and it’s still being drawn. As you develop your values and purpose, the artist, God, will show you the beauty of each brush stroke.
