Self Confidence Check: Always Wear Your Invisible Crown
Hello Hustle Kings! Hello Hustle Queens!
I am so excited this is my first article! Allow me to introduce myself...
I Know You Are Wondering...Why does she call herself Queen Kay??
Okay, so first of all, publicly I go by the name Kay Smith. In the last few years, though, I have began to call myself Queen Kay. Why Queen Kay? Well, here's when I get a little personal... I didn't always think of myself of a Queen, or anything that important really. I know I am not alone when I say this. There are people all over the world, who don't love themselves. Things like social media, TV, and even Radio can make you feel like you are small and don't matter. We constantly find ourselves trying to keep up with the world's standards of how we should look, what we should wear, and how we should live our lives.
When I turned Dirty 30, I had an epiphany.
When I turned 30, I had an awakening. I began to no longer look outside for guidance on how my life should be but instead I began to look inside. I began to go to church and build a relationship with God who showed me just how beautifully talented I am. He not only showed me, but made me see how each of us were designed, and made for a particular purpose. We each have unique gifts and talents so there isn't a reason why we should compare, or try to be like anyone else.
That's why I like to address myself and others around me as Kings and Queens. This is a reminder, to me, that we shouldn't be followers to anyone on this earth, but insteadleaders. We are important and we matter. There is no one on this green earth that is better than you. You are worthy. You are somebody.
Please note: Anyone that ever tells you are not worthy, or make you feel small, pray for them, because they are in fact the one that feels small. If you are confident with yourself and what you have going on, you don't have any reason to tear someone else down. Don't listen to that mean spirited person's words and instead, pray for their heart. They are truly hurting inside.
You are a King & Queen, so wear that invisible Crown!
When I think of a King or Queen, I think of the crown. It should be a reminder that we each are beautifully made. We each have unique beauty that no one else could ever possess. So when I call myself Queen Kay, I don't intend to be conceited or something. I find it to be very humbling. It keeps me level when I tend to think low of myself. The world has a way of beating us down as soon as we walk out the door.
I hope you too carry yourself as a King or Queen where ever you go with an invisible crown on your head. You should never try to copy or follow any one else's life. Instead go on your unique path that God has prepared for you. You will be happier because life will be less stressful.
In case you didn't know it, Smile! God Loves you and so do I!
