Stained Beauty Mon, 11 Apr 2016 14:19:33 +0000 Stained Beauty

stainedbeautyYou take care of yourself; spend a lot of money on clothes, shoes, accessories and hair. Everyone notices you when you go out, but still you are never satisfied. You are always looking for something more, but this “something” never comes.

You ask yourself: “What else can I do? Where is the result of the investment that I make in myself? Why am I still needy?”

Do you know why you feel like this? It’s because your beauty is “stained.” Why are you one person at home, another one at school and yet another one when you are around your friends? You are “stained” inside. Your interior is damaged, it’s sad… and it reflects on the outside.

You may invest a lot in your body, in your appearance, in your image, but you forget that all these things are temporary and one day you are going to be old, or do you think that age will not catch up with you?

Look deep inside yourself and find your real identity. Take care of your inner self, forgive and love so you can enjoy your real beauty, the one that comes from inside out.

You will realise that you are much more beautiful than you think you are, and that your beauty doesn’t depend on make-up or the clothes you wear. People will notice you, not because you want to show off, but because you naturally shine.

Red Shoes Mon, 11 Apr 2016 13:59:51 +0000 Red Shoes

redshoesNormally when we wear high heels, especially red ones, we get a feeling of power and people even say “wow! You look stunning in those shoes”. Isn’t that what happens?

So girls, let’s talk a bit about this “feeling” of power that you get when you wear something that raises your self-esteem.

You all have your value, your essence and your beauty.  You are wonderful, you are real princesses but, many times, you don’t see yourself in a positive light.  You look down on yourself and think that you are a “nobody”. Perhaps, because of what you see in your family, because your parents didn’t accomplish much and you think you are going to follow the same path. You can’t see yourself being able to accomplish your goals, because everything around you is negative.

You eat, drink and wear the negative thoughts you have so you dress yourself because of those complexes.

You don’t need to wear those amazing red high heels, super make up or a new dress to value yourself because when you take off those shoes, when you remove the make up and take off that beautiful dress, those feelings of frustration will still be there and your self esteem will go down again.

Those red shoes, your boyfriend, your friends, parties or fashion will be able fill the void inside of you. You need to be transformed from inside of you and there’s only one way for this to happen, that is when you allow God to make all things new in your life.

He will give you the real power that you need to overcome, so you will not need any “red shoes” to love yourself. Be strong and don’t give in to your weaknesses.

“If you faint in the day of adversity, your strength is small.” (Proverbs 24:10)

My dear, even if you are suffering as you read this article, be sure that your life can change.

It’s all up to you.

I was ‘Mummy’s little girl’ until… Thu, 31 Mar 2016 13:58:24 +0000 I was ‘Mummy’s little girl’ until…

Daise1It all began when I moved to the UK. I was ‘Mummy’s little girl’ until I started secondary school and saw how other children behaved towards each other so I decided to do as they did in order to fit in. At first it was a way of fitting in but, as time went by, it became who I was.

I turned out to be a rebellious youth who brought a lot of trouble to my family. I was aggressive to my Mum; I shouted at her and did anything to oppose her, just to annoy her. I hoped that way she would see that I was in control. I did this because, in my reasoning, I felt that she never understood me and she never would, therefore, I had to set the rules my way for her to follow. I didn’t respect or fear my Mum in any way, nor listened to what she had to say to me. Many were the times that I held her by the wrist or pushed her out of the way to stop her from hitting me.

I stole from shops and other girls when I was with a group of friends. I also got into some fights at school.

Later on, I got involved in meaningless relationships with guys without having any feelings for them. From the age of 14/15, I went to parties without my Mum’s consent and, even when she found out what I did, I still went, not caring if she knew the truth or not. I partied almost every weekend, and summer time felt like my time to shine (that was when I used to go to Portugal just to party). I remember various occasions when I left my house to go out with friends to parties/clubs without my Mum’s permission. I didn’t care about the consequences of hurting her, because something bad might happen to me out there or, even if I was thrown out of the house.

I became a cold person with a tough exterior when, inside, I was sad, proud and full of resentment; I was a lost girl who looked for happiness in the wrong things. To be honest, I wanted to change but didn’t know how to, so I convinced myself that that was how my life was and I would never have a happy relationship with my Mum. It was my burden to carry.

Untitled-1Then, I was invited to the VYG – the best thing that ever happened to me. Hearing the messages gave me hope that there was a way out of it all. Not long afterwards, I was introduced to the Sunday, Wednesday and Friday services, which really helped me by giving me guidance and strength I very much needed to fight for my life. It was not easy and things did not change overnight. It took time and effort for me to change, through the support I received from other young people like myself.  They understood what I was going through and knew exactly where I was coming from.

Today – rebellion, sadness, pride or resentment are no longer inside of me because I gave God a chance to work in me – His way.  It was hard but definitely worth it. I am amazed at the changes in me, as I never thought I would attain the character, joy and calm mother-daughter relationship we have today.

I have a full time job and I’m a pleasant confident person. I’m really happy because I’m engaged and preparing myself to get married.
