Well, I have been under the sun for close to 27 years now.. not young, not old enough to ooze of wisdom, yet as a woman I have learnt..
Wait.. what did you expect? I love eating.. so treating myself is simply, feed yourself Winnie with all delicacies.. spoil myself..
Nobody else will. So, with that said, lemme enjoy chicken roti then realize it’s mid January and I will broke the entire month.
I can’t wait for Valentine’s too.. am getting more food you know?? Any suggestions on Mexican cuisine?
2. Love myself
Hi Winnie. I love you. This is me telling me even at my worst. Sometimes, we aren’t good enough to anybody including family.. you can only love yourself and remind yourself that only other being who loves you limitlessly is God.
3. Nobody can hurt me unless I allow them
It’s me and God against the world. I won’t allow anyone to put me down. This has taken a lot of training. The closest to hurt I come is irritation. If someone irritates me or makes uncomfortable, I have the power to kick you out of my life. I have no time whatsoever to waste on such people.
I hate hurting people back unless it’s called for.. what? Am not a saint.
4. I am beautiful no matter what you think
There was a time when a comment about my body made me feel bad.. a comment on my boobs.. a comment on my ass or my size.. a comment on my hair.. I would feel like am not beautiful enough..
Then I trained myself on leaning towards the positive.. like a taylor commenting on how small my waist is.. like a friend saying my boobs look amazing. Like my friend saying tall girls are always beautiful..
I have learned to appreciate myself. I only watch my weight not to get me on the wrong side of BMI.. nothing else.
I am beautiful. I am fearfully and wonderfully made.. If you think otherwise, that’s your problem. If you think there’s a part of me that I should change, work on yourself. Don’t project your insecurities on me. If you think I should change my walking style, go ahead and give birth to your own kid.. train it in your ways. I haven’t heard my mama complain.
5. Be myself
I am Winnie. Then it is so on earth and heavens. I can only work on improving my weaknesses where necessary.. at times though, am strongest when weak.
I just saw the Tusker Project Fame judge with a tshirt written
‘i love curves
I love my curls
I love my height
I love my laugh
I love heritage
I simply love being me’
Wise, right?? Well, learn from the weakest of them all.. me. Love yourself woman.
Falling in love with yourself if the beginning of life long romance..
Enjoy your life .
Now let me eat.. wait.. did I just use my next week fare on food . Damn it!!
