When I was thinking about starting The Tailored Market I didn't want it to be a place where I just sold clothes. I wanted it to be a place where I could help uplift and inspire others to be a little better...a little more kind- to themselves and others. So every once in a while I will share a little message with you I hope in some way makes you smile, changes your perspective or gives you a little something you needed to hear.
Today's message is one I often use in my own life. One I use to challenge the negative thoughts that pop into my head more than I like to admit. Here is something I want you to think about...
Who told you....
you weren't enough
you weren't pretty enough, skinny enough, tall enough, talented enough, kind enough, smart enough, patient enough?
Who told you...
you were ugly, or fat, or unloveable or stupid? Who told you?
If the world had never told us fat was ugly, ugly was unacceptable, failure was inevitable, stupid was your fate, talents were lacking..would we know any different?
Would we know...stretch marks were ugly?
Would we know a size 16 was considered plus?
Would we know less than was failing?
What would we not know and what would know if no one had ever said...you are fat...you are stupid, you are not enough, you are ugly.
Just think about it for a second...
The next time you have a negative thought about yourself I want you to challenge it. I want you to ask yourself where is this thought coming from? Because who is telling you will change your perspective.
For me I strive to hear the still small voice- God's voice and more times than not his isn't the one telling me I am not this and not that. When I am still I often times here the little voice whispering- you are enough, you are beautiful, you are talented, you are kind, you are important, you are loved. Whose voice we listen to reflects greatly in how we see ourself.
Chose to see yourself the way you really are and not the way the world would tell you to be!
