We live in a world that is dominated by social media where our minds are constantly being filled with a distorted image of beauty. Every time I look in the mirror I find something else that I do not like about myself and I know that I am not the only person who does this as well. This is not OK.

We as humans want what we don't have. We see a picture of our dream travel destination on Instagram and we think 'I will never get there'. We see the people around us following their dreams and think 'I will never be that successful'. Or we see a photo of that skinny super model and think 'I will never be that beautiful'. We need to break free of social media's influence on our minds.

I feel very strongly that everyone must know that they are valued and worthy. Whether this be at work or in our personal lives. We are all different and created for a purpose. We need to dig deep into our hearts and and find our self worth. What makes you different? What sets you apart from others? This can be anything from your talents, your kindness, your love for helping others, or your work ethic. We need to start having a good relationship with ourselves. God is not going to help you try to be someone else - someone else is already taken.

Most importantly, let's pray for our mindsets to be renewed. Too often I allow someone's false opinion of me determine my self worth. Do not allow anyone to dictate your happiness or steal your joy. Stay positive through the hard times, forgive those who have hurt you and leave it in the past. Stop dwelling on the pain and realise how incredibly special YOU are! Do not be controlled by what people think, say or do. Even if they totally reject you, you will survive!! Do not let others define who you are - you define who you are.
Let's start focusing on the good in our lives, enjoying the present, getting rid of our negative thinking and begin speaking positively about ourselves and others.

Romans 12:2
'Do not conform to the patterns of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.'

You are more beautiful and precious to God than the earth. You are created in God's image, hand picked and hand woven. Nothing is more beautiful in this world to God than YOU. Speak positive, speak love, speak His Word and you will see a change in your perspective.
