There is nothing more stunning than a woman who knows who she is, loves herself and as a result treats herself well. The thing that stands out in her is the confidence that she exudes. Because she is well aware of her relevance she is able to love freely and completely, helping to make the world a better place. She is a role-model and example of how to live, love and serve in a world that can at times seem unaware of those extremely vital qualities.
How can a woman obtain such stature one might ask?
The answer is simple, by seeking God. She understands that at the top of her to do list should not be to obtain fabulous shoes and homes or to impress the world with her knowledge or abilities but instead to live and use what she has been given to help people grow closer to God; to their truth.
She knows that she must live her life in service to others and she understands that she must do so in love. 1 Cor. chapter 13 from the Bible teaches that we can give and do all sorts of things but if they are not done in love then it has been a waste of time and means nothing.
I Challenge anyone who wants to live a stunning life to read 1 Corinthians chapter 13: 1 -13 because it has changed my life and continues to do so. It helps me to deal with people and life situations in a Godly way instead of my way, which could be rude or anger filed were I not aware that I can choose differently.
To seek God for me was to read and study to learn truly what God was, is, and forever will be. What I have learned is that God is love. It is important to arm one’s self with love by taking it in through our thinking and our senses. Are we watching programing that would support or promote love in some real way? Are we listening to music that conditions the heart to be more loving? Are we keeping company with people who fill our hearts with joy because of their loving nature? Are we eating foods most often, which nurture us and enable us to feel satisfied and healthy? Are we focusing our thinking on positive things that will help us develop into the women we want to be? Most of us are innately nurturing care takers rushing around for everyone else while neglecting ourselves.
Whose Loving You
If a woman is going to be stunning then she must love herself, for it is impossible to love others without loving you first. Often times a person can be under the delusion that they love themselves but saying it does not make it so. It is in the being, the doing that expresses love. If you only told others that you loved them but never did much to show it, how could they trust your love for them? If you never showed up to an important event, been a shoulder to cry on or a source of support, then your words would be meaningless. Well the same is true for you.
Talk is cheap; you need to prove to you that you matter. You need to show up for you. Don’t wait until you are going someplace special to treat yourself well. When you get up in the morning after you give thanks for another day, take care of you. Make the time to do whatever it takes to make you feel special. It is different for everyone and there are no hard rules just spend time with you. Read, meditate; give yourself a mini facial, put on clothes that really make you feel stunning. If jeans and a t-shirt does that for you, than you are on your way to having a great day. How about taking a few extra minutes to put on make-up? If it only takes a smidge of mascara and a lip gloss to make you feel great then why not do that little thing for you. Go ahead; be stunning and love yourself today.
