"self talk." uPdATe at bottom of post
"If it's not acceptable to
say it to other people,
why say it to ourselves?"
how would you react if someone told you
out loud what you are secretly thinking?
Dove's "One Beautiful Thing" video
does just that . . and
gets to the point of how we as women
can be our own worst enemies.
then wonder at our sorry state
this video, which i've watched
three times ... so far ... has brought
me to a place of examining my
own "self talk."
my personal view isn't necessarily
how others see me.
how God sees me.
so why do i do it?
this is a good thing to think on...
do we do this to other women?
unnatural expectation of perfection.
is it societal? rooted in competition?
i am His precious daughter
and He delights in me.
YOU ... are His precious daughters
and He delights in you.
we don't need perfection
to be beautiful.
watch this video a few times..
there are subtitles so watching a few
times will offer an intimate glimpse
of body language, facial expression,
let's change this pattern.....
beginning with ourselves.
after watching the video a few times, please click on this link: Desiring God .. for a beautifully written and encouraging article about this subject. this link was given to me by my long time dear friend, jan from minnesota. we've known one another for 39 years. yowza.
