Do you ever have those days where you’re just feeling really good about yourself? Just in general about how you look, feel and act? And then someone just goes and says one thing and ruins it. That was me today. I like most women struggle with self confidence and body image, so going to the gym to meet with a personal trainer for the first time was a big deal for me. I did good working out, ate a salad, had chicken and pasta and was doing pretty good drinking a lot of water. I was feeling good about myself in every way. Arguably a little too good I might say just a little overexcited. So the night goes on and I decided to have a Twinkie just something small after I’d been good, or so I thought. Then my mom was like you just ruined your workout, I’m like one Twinkie isn’t going to hurt to which she replied “yes the one Twinkie and three French fries ruined all of your effort”. At this point I’m thinking when did I even have French fries last so I ask her and she’s like Tuesday. I’m like seriously at this point I’m realizing, she’s just projecting her self confidence issues off on me because I was feeling too good about myself. So my question to other women feel free to reply, how do we not let that get to us? Is it a matter of just shrugging it off or what? Just something I’m struggling with. I don’t understand how someone who should encourage us attempts to discourage us. I mean even the bible says ““I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well.” Psalms 139:14 ESV. I think as women it is hard for us to remember that God made us just how he wanted us to be!
