As a Pink Collar Savvy & Chic on Purpose Swan, I spent most of life in the barnyard with haters – the crows. They had me convinced I was ugly – inside and out. I was so beaten down and bruised that I believed I was unworthy of love. But I called out to my heavenly Father, and He delivered me. Through his boundless love and that of a godly husband who has shown me everything it means to truly be loved by a man – I know who I and whose I am. Beautiful on the outside because I’ve always been a Swan, and on the inside because I’ve been transformed and belong to Him.
There was a time when I would have gone back and annihilated this person with my words. I’m not proud of that. It was the coward’s choice…More courage (and control!) is required to respond vs. react. Thankfully I’m still a work in progress! By the grace of God my courageous response to the hateful message was to pour out a deluge of prayers for the messenger.
When the sharpest words wanna cut me down
I’m gonna send a flood, gonna drown them out
This is brave, this is proof
This is who I’m meant to be, this is me.
How about you? Are you Pink Collar Savvy & Chic on Purpose with your response to harsh words? Are you who you’re meant to be? When it’s hard to bite our tongues – or temper our typing – remember that when we reflect Him – on the home-front or in the workplace – no matter what they say, we’re GLORIOUS!
Be savvy & chic,
~Pink Collar Coach
