Come To Terms With The Real You

Hi. This is a style post with a little inspirational twist. Does the length of the skirt matter?

The Real You


You can fake it. You can pretend for as long as you want.

You can fake holiness. You can fake piety. You can fake morality. You can fake righteousness. You can fake sister Mary. You can even fake happening babe. Everything  is fakeable.

The concept of those who fake is all in the Bible.

“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.
~ Matthew 7:21–23

God isn’t impressed. He isn’t fooled, or even happy with the “good” girlism (or boyism, for the guys who read my blog. Lol.) that you choose to present/wear. God doesn’t want your pleasantries or performances; He wants your heart. He wants the real you.


From an outside perspective, people can think you are the greatest and nicest person ever. They can think you love God and are on fire for Him. You can even fake love!

How often do you look in the mirror, not just physically now, but in the mirror of your heart, to come to terms with who you really are, and say, “I’m fearfully and wonderfully made. I matter. I am created in God's image. I am beautiful. God has a plan for me. I’m not too short; I’m not too tall. I have the right personality. I have the right gifts. I don’t need to be like anyone else.” 

Do you know it's exhausting being someone else? It takes a lot of effort to be a fake than to be genuine. 

The heart of the matter is: Many of us, most people, spend a great deal of their time and energy trying to be like someone else or wishing they were someone else.  And so we dress like someone else, we act like someone else, we have all these different models. And we spend all of our energy and time trying to be a copy of something that’s not nearly as attractive as the ONE unique person, you. 


I love this skirt. But each time I wear it, I find myself tugging on it at intervals to keep it down and stop it from riding up. And it's not an interesting look. It's a confusing irritating unimpressive look. 

Here is the point:

If you are a mini skirt, be
If you are short skirt, be.
If you are a long skirt, be
If you are a maxi skirt, be.

Stop faking it. Stop trying to be someone else.

So, don't be like this skirt. Come to terms with the real you. Be consistent and diligent in your own measurement.

Happy Sunday!
Be-You-tiful.
