When you’re feeling like you’re not good enough

imageRemember this, there’s a reason you’re here. There’s a reason you survived your birth, the car ride to work today, the heat of the summer, the sickness you’re enduring, and so many other things. You are a survivor, and you have a purpose, because God destined you with one.

In Christ, you are worth so much more than riches and worldy possessions. He placed you on this earth to make a difference. Some may reach the world and some may reach a few. We all have different gifts and abilities suited perfectly for our purpose.

2 Corinthians 12:9 But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

We are weak. The flesh is weak. Our God is strong. His power is made perfect in weakness, which means, His power is unmatched when it dwells in us. Claim His power in your life and surrender your life to Him. Everything He wants for you is what’s best and out of love for you.

You are enough, because God says so. That guy who dumped you? That friend who dissed you? They don’t have any idea of your worth and beauty. Pray for their heart and their happiness, then move on. Find people who see your strength, abilities, beauty, and originality!

Happy Father’s Day!

Happy Father’s Day to this guy. I wouldn’t have the high expectations I do, the strength to carry on when I’m knocked down, the courage to persevere, and the ability to take a step back when needed if it weren’t for him. He has taught me some of the most important life lessons and has been the backbone to our family for 30+ years. He’s why I stand firm in what I believe and am my own person without regret. Love you, Dad.

Happy Father’s Day, everyone! This is an oldie but a goodie. I had the pleasure of photographing my brother and beautiful sister-in-law’s wedding in 2010. This is one of my favorite moments. A man who didn’t have to be there stepped up and has been a wonderful dad, friend, and provider. Thanks to all those dads who didn’t have to be dads!

Rain, rain

Go away, come again [in moderation].

Rain is a blessing for the land, but this rain has been detrimental for so many home owners and animals. Please keep people close to my heart in your thoughts and prayers. Some have lost everything.

Thank you.

Learning to love…

My AFOs. I have had a love/hate relationship with these babies for several years now. I caved and got an AFO for my right leg in 2013 after many falling spells and conversations with my mother. Due to my prematurity, I had to have Achilles lengthening surgery twice. Combined with muscular dystrophy means I fall a lot; my ankles rolls and my knees give out on many occasions. The AFO I had initially was very bulky and stiff. I had a difficult time wearing shoes and standing on my feet for hours and hours. It was formed specifically for my foot, but I wasn’t sold on it. I wore it on occasion and resented the stares and glares I received. My mother snapped her AFO in half and replaced it with one from Amazon. She loves it! It’s very thin, shorter than both of our original AFOs, and has gaps for your heel. Because they were so affordable, I decided to suck up my pride and buy another one for my left foot. I wasn’t sure how that would work, or if it’d even help. The first time I wore them, I was walking through the yard to feed our sheep. I busted bad! I wondered, “Was this even worth it?” Since then, however, I am so thankful I have been wearing them both. I have been fall free for a couple of weeks!
All that said, I intend on blogging different outfits that accommodate my AFOs. Being someone who likes to look professional while being comfortable, I’d like to share my ideas with others. I feel a little at a loss because pants are the easiest to wear with braces. What about knee length dresses and skirts? I like to feel pretty and flirty at times, so why should I have to set aside cute skirts because of my braces? I am determined to rock a skirt, or dress with comfortable shoes that accommodate my braces, as well. Follow me on this journey of self acceptance through fashion!:)  Follow my photo chronicles on Instagram: danaeblessing

It’s been a while…

Sometimes, it becomes difficult for me to write. I over think, over analyze, and feel like all of my ideas are awful. I spent the weekend taking care of my brother’s kids, and it gave me a sense of clarity. I was away from my usual environment and had different daily demands. I am so thankful for the time I spent with them, but it made me thankful for everything I have. I tend to be a realist leaning towards pessimism. I get in to ruts frequently, and wonder what else there is for me, what am I doing with my life? Things of that nature. Isn’t that ridiculous? I have a wonderful family, some physically living near, and so many don’t have those blessings. My attitude has changed drastically. I am thankful for what I have!
