Hello LinPRinPers, welcome back again. I’m a Nigerian American Lifestyle blogger/vlogger who loves living a peaceful life and I love talking about situations we might find ourselves in that need peaceful endings. In todays blog, I’m covering how we can mindfully gain control over our emotions over our physical look by what we wear and how we can feel fierce and stay in control in a world of full of distractions. The FSHN section of my channel focuses on the fashion aspect of living a peaceful life. As we all know, what we wear says a lot about how we’re feeling on the inside.
What I’d like to do with this part of my channel is to show you guys the journey women go through with their weight and fashion styles. I’ve always wanted to change my closet and I figured I could let you guys in on a little bit about this part of my life. This episode is to encourage ourselves as women as always during these times of uncertainty, fear, and anxiety. I’ve been refraining from adding my voice to these videos nowadays because of the kids, they’re home and are always chatting but you’ll hear from me very soon.
Contentment and satisfaction go hand in hand when you want to live a peaceful life. Peaceful living can be broad and in the physical aspect, how we look at ourselves can impact how others see us as well. In the video above, it was important to see a confident woman in myself, regardless of how much I weigh and who I see in the mirror. In a society that rewards extra skinny women, it can get very disturbing how us women engage in self destructive behaviors trying to get back to that shape that the society “approves” of. I would look skinny and anorexic if I had to go back to that weight I was before I started having kids.
I look at young women today who are banking on their physical looks right now on social media platforms, the rude awakening coming later on can drive someone into depression and other unhealthy habits. It is very important that us women celebrate ourselves every step of the way. I am basically embracing myself wholeheartedly into the woman I have become in the video above that I hope you will watch and learn something from it. As a follower of Christ, it was also very important for me to remind myself of the reasons why I do what I do.
Here are some Bible verses to chew on while you get right with yourself, physically. that translates to your spiritual mind and vice versa.
Psalm 16:8 – I keep my eyes always on the Lord. With him at my right hand, I will not be shaken.
Deuteronomy 31:6 Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”
John 14:27 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.
As I put this video together, I wasn’t confident, I was shy, I was scared even about how others would see me, oh she’s “phat”, or why’s she walking like that but then I was like whatever, I will still post it. We need to encourage ourselves and make confident women the new normal. I searched the youtube free music list and this jazzy tunes just put it all together. It inspired me, it lifted up my spirits and I hope it does that to yours as well.
Thank you very much for joining me on this episode. God willing, we are on this earth for an average of 75-80yrs. Let’s not waste any of that precious time on matters that don’t help us positively in some way. You have a decision to make, if not now, maybe later, the ball of you’ll feel in your physical looks are in your hands. Be positive about it, be confident about it, be proud of yourself.
