An Eternal Image

[God shines his light down onto us so that in return we shine back for him]

The old Ali was big on self image, looks, and feeling good 
enough in her own sometimes "zitty" skin.  Feelings, feelings, feelings...dumb.
The new Ali though is set on her eternal image.
Even on bad hair days, days when those annoying zits show up, days when your closet is a giant lava pit of clothes you've tried on, days when you don't "feel" good enough for the tasks ahead it's important to remind yourself exactly why you're alive this day.
We are here because of Christ and his love & passion for us to do good in this world.
We are not here to look pretty. Don't let your feelings dictate your day.
We are here to love and shine our little lights.
Remember that today.
It's not about you, it's about him.
You are beautiful no matter the day or what lies ahead.
You are so precious to him.
Him, the creator of the entire universe.
I don't know about you, but i get the tingles thinking about that.
Smile and know how beautiful you are to him always :)

& as the lovely Joyce Meyer would say: 
Do not say anything else negative about you out of your own mouth. Say what God thinks about you.
