I see the magazines working that Photoshop
We know that sh** ain’t real
Come on now, make it stop
If you got beauty beauty just raise ’em up
‘Cause every inch of you is perfect
From the bottom to the top”
~Meghan Trainer, “All About That Bass”
Only human beings would take something beautiful that God made (Genesis 1:17) and try to make it more beautiful in our own eyes.
Today, so many women don’t feel comfortable in their own body because society tells them they are not good enough, skinny enough, or pretty enough. It’s time to stop. Those glossy photos in the magazines aren’t real. Real women don’t look like that. Even the models don’t look like that. It’s an illusion. It’s a lie.
“Yeah, it’s clear, I ain’t no size two.” Meghan Trainer
Nope. I am not. My body, even though I don’t measure up to the body image of society, was created by a loving artist, the master creator. For that, I am grateful.
Embrace your body with muffin top and all. Make a priority to make healthy choices, but love yourself where you are right now. Don’t wait to love yourself when you are that magic size.
Your body was wonderfully and lovely made. (Isaiah 64:8) Show gratitude for that. Celebrate it.
