My smile is God’s gift to me to replace my past tears
My body isn’t perfect but I walk with confidence. I don’t get into fights with friends or non friends, I am not razz, most of my midnight’s are spent praying and interceding for others, some other nights I’d rather be by myself meditating and reflecting of God’s faithfulness in my journey. I have been asked times without number if my smiles or laughter is fake and I wonder why?
Those smiles are my gift from God as a daughter of the most high God. A gift I was given to replace all my past tears. There are days I’m forced to use a fake smile and a fake laugh for fake people, sometimes I try to convince myself things are okay with certain people around me when they are not but I try not to let that bother me. I’m not ugly for although I have been called ugly to my face but I choose to be beautiful. I don’t look as good in real life as I do in pictures, I’m imperfect but I’m perfectly me.
Sometimes, I have to remind myself that I don’t have to do what everyone else is doing.
I am in competition with no one. I play no game of being better than anyone. I have no intention of running life’s race with anyone. I am simply trying to be better than the person I was yesterday.
I may not be perfect. I may not be gorgeous. But I’m me and that is okay with me. Because I’m naturally beautiful inside and that’s something those who envy me will never be.
I AM PERFECTLY ME!
