From Within

Every day I look in the mirror and I love the person that I am. I realize that I am more than this physical body that I am in. I can see very deeply into my soul and I am a spiritual being having a human experience. With that being said my physical form is just as beautiful as my soul. I didn’t feel this way all the time. I use to always have confidence issues and there was a time in my life when I hated who I was.

I didn’t know that the way you feel about yourself can be seen by others and branch off and make other parts of your life manifest either positive things or negative ones. Most of the time you are your own biggest fan or downfall.

Being a plus size woman you pretty much see life differently from what you wear everyday to what you eat. Being a Woman in today’s society is hard enough however when what you weigh is thrown into the equation it makes life more complex.

It’s sad that how you look today makes some people treat you certain ways. Not only about your skin
color but your weight as well. I’m sure you wonder where I’m going with this. Well the woman I am
today isn’t even on the same level as the woman I was years ago. I am at a higher level because I looked deep within and had to check myself.

I started to not let my past have any control over my present and in result I have a better future. I slowly began to trust that I can do anything I put my mind to and if “Trust the Process” was a person it would be me! My spiritual awakening helped a lot with finding my true self, loving her and never wanting to let go. A lot of things are different now. I’m a different person and I’ve only just begun to admire and love the person from within.
