“Love Your Flawz”
Written by Christi Given | January 17, 2012
Everyone is flawed. Yet the media pushes airbrushed bodies in magazines and the entertainment industry. We are constantly bombarded with the pressure to look “perfect.”
The reality of life is that one day you will grow older and have wrinkles, but you will remain you. So why not embrace it? We all have something about us we can love instead of looking at it negatively.
Caitlin Crosby presents this idea in her song “Love Your Flawz.” Watch the inspiring video of people showing off their natural beauty:
Not only is “Love Your Flawz” a song, it’s also a movement. Crosby even has a website where you can post pictures, stories and words of encouragement, and watch videos, read inspiring quotes and learn about helpful ways to embrace your “flawz.” This site is so helpful for people who are dealing with insecurities.
It’s great that Crosby realizes we are all uniquely made and that no matter what flaws we have, GOD STILL LOVES US! He even knows how many hairs are on your head! He created you, cherishes you and watches over you! God’s love is eternal and his love for you OUTNUMBERS the grains of sand on the seashore!
Indeed, the very hairs on your head are all numbered (Luke 12:7).
Crosby is attracting all types of people to her website, including celebrities such as Jennifer Love Hewitt. The idea is to embrace your flaws because life is too short to be insecure or to compare yourself to others!
PI girls, if you or someone you know is struggling with insecurities, remember that God doesn’t think you have any flaws. You are wonderfully made! As humans, of course we find the flaws in ourselves, but the truth is, we all are beautiful beings because God handmade us and knew us before we were even born!
For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb, I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made (Psalm 139:13-14).
What is something that maybe the world would say is a flaw, but that you’ve chosen to embrace about yourself? Ready, set, go–comment below!!
