Do you feel good about yourself? Do you think if you were in great shape or lost those last five pounds all this sudden you would be happier? Are you too hard on yourself? For some of us our weight or body image defines us and our happiness is dictated by the number on the scale or what we see in the mirror. The root of the problem is a lack of self-esteem and valuing oneself solely on appearance.
Self-esteem is something people think they can get from the way they look, but self-esteem comes from the inside not the outside. Honoring your self-made promises is key. How many times have you said you were going to do something, quit smoking, lose weight and even change your career only to stay in the exact same spot? Our faith in ourselves erodes with each time we make those unkept promises.
The importance of knowing who your truth and accepting all your strengths and weaknesses enables you to enjoy life. Your identity as a person is not based on what you look like.
Self-esteem can be found when you accept yourself the way you are, right now, not when this or that happens. Walking around feeling like your less of a person because of the way you look or what you weigh is an outright waste of the precious time God has blessed you with. Have you ever considered, there is only one you, no one can be you and no one can ever take your place? That makes you pretty special! Keep the promises you make to yourself and watch your self-esteem soar.
