My name is Donna and my desire is to be comfortable in my own skin!
I had an awakening last summer, which is when I set out to not change the world, but change the way I look at the world. To change the way I allow the world to look at me. I am not someone who desires to be "of the world", my desire is to serve Jesus and for Him to smile upon me and say "well done". I'm not looking for "great hair, rockin' body, hugely successful career, beautiful home and nice wheels" I seek for Him to see me for who I am. Who am I?
I am a woman who chooses to be seeded in Jesus. Who desires a relationship with Him. I am a woman who understands I only have one body and I must take care of it to the best of my ability. I take great pride in taking care of me. I am a woman who desires to feel confident, I read a lot regarding marriage, children and relationships with others. I seek to have the best relationships possible, I desire to surround myself with positive, encouraging, God loving people who bring out the best in themselves and in others. I am a woman who doesn't just go to work because I have to work, I go to work because I enjoy what I do. I want to be the best at what I do. I didn't say better than everyone else, but the best - meaning my best. So I seek to further my education so that I may obtain that.
I am a woman who appreciates the little things in life, for I understand it is the building of little blessings which bless us big!
I am a woman who was [was] a broken little girl who made choices in life which set me on a path which ran from the hurt and negative people into a life of surrounding myself with positive people.
I am a woman who allows insecurities to peek in, but I do not allow them to take over my life. I am woman who gets dressed each day and when I look in the mirror I think "eh" and am reminded HE MADE ME and I AM BEAUTIFUL even if the mirror whispers something else.
I am a woman who has goals, desires, dreams and ambitions, who loves with her whole heart and desires to be soaked in Jesus. I am a woman, a work in progress who is becoming COMFORTABLE IN MY OWN SKIN, for the first time in my life.
Yesterday, I got off the treadmill and I was beet red, sweaty, stinky and you get it and when I glanced in the mirror I smiled at myself and myself smiled back as I heard Jesus say "well done, you are beautiful and wonderfully made"..... I am a woman who is becoming.... becoming comfortable in my own skin through a process of accepting me as who I am, where I am and how wonderfully made I am!
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. Psalms 139:4
