“I will be confident when...”
NOPE. I AM CONFIDENT NOW.
So much of my life of waiting for the “when’s” could have happened had I chosen them in the now. One thing I always shied from... absolute confidence.
So often I thought and so often I hear, “I will be confident again when my body looks like (fill in the blank).” That was my struggle. That was my struggle just three months ago. It was my temptation just yesterday. I almost retreated from posting this photo because hunching over shows a little extra belly fat.
I am done with the “I will be confident.” Confidence is not conditional. It is not something we have based on circumstance. It is something we stand on no matter life’s circumstances. It is a confidence in our faith, in our Maker, in ourselves.
No longer will I allow society to hold the pen that writes my narrative. Not in the things I think about myself, not of others, not of God and not this world.
These last three years have been about taking the pen back in every way, in every season and in every thought. I will not allow it to also determine my confidence.
We were created so beautifully, so lovely and WE get to decide what describes us.
Walking in confidence is not an overnight thing. But it will come, with a ton of questions and a ton of tears and a hell of a lot more laughter! Keep going, the other side is worth it. YOU are worth it. ️
