Hey fineigbogirl lovers.. Happy new year and I do hope its been an amazing 22days into the year for you all so far?? So here’s my first post for the year, its honestly been crazy for me because of law school and right now, I have to admit that it only gets tougher but God is faithful.
Why haven’t I been posting?
Let me share a little something with you all. So for about 2months now I haven’t been feeling like my dressy self. All I wear is sweatpants and oversized tee shirts and this is because I started to feel insecure about my body. People kept talking about how I’ve added weight and I know that most people would want to pretend to be strong and say they don’t care what others think.. I don’t too, but weight gain is a really touchy subject for most African women and it takes a certain boldness to overlook people’s opinions. So what am trying to say is, I guess I wasn’t strong enough. I stopped dressing up, eating less and exercising but the difference is that right now, am doing all this for ME! Its become a lifestyle for me now that I look forward to going for a run and it also doesn’t feel like my body is rejecting a super healthy meal (LOL).
So ladies, self love is absolutely important! Don’t let anyone bring you down or change who you are with their words. Their opinions don’t matter! You don’t need external validation!
And most importantly, your identity is found in Christ and HE absolutely love you no matter what you look like!
I really am in love with today’s look and i hope you do too!
So I know the pictures are not so clear because the sun wasn’t in my favor today.
Okay, so am not sure when the next post will be but I will try to post often.
I absolutely love you all because despite my absence, I still get notifications of my blog status and that’s so lit!!
Love & Light
