I can remember as a girl growing up and not feeling completely comfortable in my own “skin” because of other people. I know now that their comments were just a reflection of their own insecurities. The simplicit yet beautiful originality of my name, the sweet educated tone of my voice, my warm mocha brown complexion, those curves in my hips and fullness of my lips were just a few of my characteristics I was ridiculed for….
Notice how I’ve discovered the beauty in what others found as “unattractiviness”…..
I didn’t start to appreciate my uniqueness until I began to adore myself. I practice daily to be content with “Adia” and all that she is and will become. I’m not striving for perfection nor will I ever. I can’t have it all nor do I want. I will just give everything I set my mind to, my best and simply be me….
So be YOU and don’t allow anyone to ever tell or make you feel you’re less than you’re worth because beauty truly is in the eye of the beholder….😘💗
