Project 31. Insecurities as a woman

How often have you admired a woman, maybe a friend or family member, or even someone you don't even know (from afar)? Sometimes we get so caught up in envying someone else, imagining their (supposedly) perfect life, that we don't even realize that just like us these women are insecure in one way or another as well.

Insecurity is everywhere.
The Rich
The Poor
Over weight people
UNDER weight people

We have to get away from those stereotypes of who "we" think should be secure or insecure because the fact of the matter is at some point, we've all felt insecure. Sometimes the most organized, secure looking person you know, is often the most insecure. Organization is sometimes a concealer for an insecurity. If I look put together no one will ever see all my own issues with self doubt.

I won't lie. I have my insecure days. We all have the right to that. I am often insecure about if I am doing everything to my best ability. Am I good enough? I often get upset with myself if I don't finish everything I need to finish in one day. Though I am coming to realize that sometimes I just pile too much on my plate. Regardless, I still wonder if it was really too much, or if I just didn't plan it all out well enough to get it all done? Insecurity often stems from that feeling of I just am not good enough

Thankfully though, despite my occasional battle with my own insecurity, I do realize that I AM GOOD ENOUGHGod created me for a specific purpose in life, and he knew exactly what his plans for me would be. And, most importantly, in his eyes I am more than good enough. I am perfect. And that my friends, is good enough for me.

- For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord. Plans to prosper you and not to harm you. Plans to give you hope and a future. - Jeremiah 29:11
