What I wanted to look like...

As a child, I was always fascinated by EVERYTHING that was different than me!!! Weeeeeellll ACTUALLY, come to think of it, as an adult, I pretty much STILL AM fascinated by everything that is different than me, HOWEVER, as a child, I wasn't just fascinated by these differences, I WANTED THEM!!!
As a little girl, I wished that I had almond-shaped eyes, bright, wildly curly red hair, or my hair in braids, chocolate skin, freckles, braces, a retainer, glasses, the only thing I was completely down with was my eye color...because they were bright...ooooh annnnnnd THE BIG GAP BETWEEN MY TWO FRONT TEETH!!! I could spit water SO far through it!!! AND nobody I knew had a gap like that!!! I LOVED that big O gap!!! AHAHAHA!!! (Btw: I still can spit really far if anyone wants to see!!!)
I was always enthralled by what was different from me!!! Its NOT that I had a bad self-image of myself, I was just SOOOO attracted to what was different than ME!!! I just thought white skin was SO BORING! Everybody I KNEW had WHITE SKIN.
 Can you imagine how I woulda looked had God let me design me????
 I'm soooo thankful that God
was my designer and NOT ME!!!
 However, I AM STILL very much drawn to and interested in what is different than me!!! I'm still intrigued by other cultures and ethnicities, The difference now tho, is that I NO LONGER want to try and be anything other than what God made me to be!!!  Not because I think my design is better, buuuuut simply because this is what God chose for ME to look like!!!
"I'm NOT beautiful like YOU!
I'm beautiful like ME!!!"
