” I am…. ” giveaway (closed)

May 25, 2015

 

I’ve been through a lot lately with myself. Dealing with no confidence and barely any self esteem. It was the worst feeling ever. The way I felt, the way I acted, the way I thought was terrible.

I got through it with friends, family and God. Sometimes you can’t always rely on others to make you happy. You have to achieve happiness by yourself. I wrote down affirmations telling me how amazing I am and how beautiful and fun I am.  I read them everyday and I started to believe them. I decided one day to finally understand my worth and accept my mistakes and my flaws….. and you should too.

Accept everything about you. Your weight, height, looks, curves, personality….everything! Tell yourself how amazing you are.  Once you believe it, others will too.

I am doing a series on my channel called “I am”. This is to help myself and others to feel better, happier and amazing! I will have a video every Saturday, whether it’s me or someone else’s video. I will do whatever I can to get us through the low self-esteem and negative mess we feel about ourselves.

I designed these shirts so you can wear affirmation(s) around the world and so everyone can see how you view and value yourself. And it’s for you to see and believe that you are so many incredible things.

I am having a giveaway. I will be giving away one of my shirts to 2 girls. This is something that I am very excited to do. Rules will be down below but I would love for you to start thinking “I am…” and say something positive about yourself. The more you say it, the more you’ll believe it.

    Hey! My name is Kasey Owen. I think I met Aminah from church at worship rehearsal. I absolutely love what you’re doing with this “I Am…” And can 100% relate. I’ve always, and still deal with so many insecurities… I nit-pick at myself every single day when I look in the mirror and wish I could look at something different and better. I grew up being the youngest girl, and I always compared myself to my mom and sister who are both very talented, beautiful, wildly successful women. I often feel overshadowed and wonder if I could ever be as good as them. Since I’ve dealt with so many insecurities, it was easy for me to fall for any type of guy that just said I was pretty and said they loved me and I got caught up in a horrible relationship. He was verbally abusive… And very controlling but me being so insecure I just put up with it because I felt like I needed acceptance from man. It wasn’t until just about a year and a half ago that I started to speak life into myself and even care enough about myself to eat right, exercise, and change up my fashion a little bit to help see myself in a new light and not put myself down so much about what I don’t have. It’s a process but I’m improving. And most importantly I’ve been finding myself and who I am through God and what He’s calling me to do. Through this journey, I’m grateful for all I’ve learned, and can’t wait for what else lies in store.

    Hello Lovely,
    My Name is Nia Naomi J. Aminah & I have interacted before over instagram! I must say, I totally love these tee shirts, #selfLove is important and more young ladies such as ourselves could always use reminders! I am 17! I am from Virginia, and I also love fashion! My goal is to infuse fashion and ministry together; spreading the gospel while setting the trends! Much like what Aminah is doing with these shirts! I belive that there are millions of girls who can relate when it comes to having low self-esteem, low confidence, and no courage. Here’s a little bit about my self-love journey: I went through a period of life where I didn’t not believe that I was beautiful. I am the second eldest out of four beautiful and talented sisters. Out of the 4 of us, I am the tallest, “lightest”, I might be the loudest(lol) and at one point in life I was the “biggest”. Most of my struggles with insecurities and self worth came from being uncomfortable as a “Big” girl. Alll through middle school to my sophmore year of highschool, I was over-weight and I really didn’t have a problem with myself until I allowed everyone’s’ opinion of who I was, what I should look like, and etc, dictate how I felt about myself. I was being bullied at the time and I just remember being very insecure, I became my biggest critic, through other things that were going on internally I began to self inflict pain, I was depressed and simply not happy. Though, In those times my parents use to always speak life in to me, encourage me, push me to be more, to think highly of myself, and it wasn’t until I actually looked at myself in the mirror and started speaking the “truth”, that I started to believe that I was worth something! The truth is that I was “fearfully and wonderfully made” and nobody could shake that! Once I started believing that I was created by the hands of God, In the image of God, for the purpose of serving God, my whole out look on life changed. I didn’t want to be “skinny” so that I could be classified as acceptable because I just wanted to be healthy and what ever shape that was, I was fine with it! I didn’t need everybody to think or tell me that I was “bad” because I knew I was gorgeous! I didn’t need to look for love and acceptance in a guy or friend group because I knew who I was in Christ! And even now on this journey, I am still defining myself, encouraging/empowering myself and others, and living for purpose on purpose!

    hey girl
    I’m Nia, I’m from Grenada a tiny island in the Caribbean. I’m 17 years old, I just finished exams and preparing to go to college this year. I’m smart, pretty and I love to be in the kitchen. I love to laugh and make people happy. I had low self esteem growing up, being the ‘fat kid’ and where i live you had to fit in this certain physique to be considered pretty and i wasn’t that. My mom would tell me I’m beautiful and encourage me to stop comparing myself with others. Eventually, I decided I wasn’t going to let what other people said about me define who I am. I decided to be happy and to enjoy life because it is truly short. i thank God for the days he’s giving me and each day is an opportunity to faLl in love with myself all over again.
