What if?

Lately I’ve randomly been thinking “what would things be like if I was thinner and subsequently more physically attractive?”

I’ll explain…. Let me begin by saying I’m an observer and I think about things way more than I should. Also, I should say that we should be real with ourselves and admit that there are some people who are generally less attractive than others. I know we want to say that “everyone is beautiful”, but honestly if we are just talking about physical beauty, there has to be unattractive for there to be a such thing as attractive. The more attractive people usually get more attention from the opposite sex, especially women.

I tend to people watch and I often see how the generally less attractive women are often ignored and sometimes treated as less by the opposite sex.  People will often try to cheer them up by saying “you only have to attract the one”. I guess telling this to someone that is rejected by most could be helpful. However, I cringe when I hear it said because I know what it really means. I can understand the kindness in not wanting there to be interaction that could be mistaken as interest, but sometimes I feel bad for these women. I see it happen to men at times, but it usually has more to do with weirdness/lack of status more-so than un-attractiveness.

What to strive for.

Admittedly, I was feeling crummy, so I did what I should have been doing anyway.  I started reading today’s chapter. Today’s chapter Was Titus 2.. telling men and women how to produce/be fruitful men and women… how to be a good church community…  I came across verse 5 and it’s goal for young wives.
Titus 2:5 HCSB

"to be self-controlled, pure, homemakers, kind, and submissive  to their husbands, so that God’s message  will not be slandered."
Now no poor man has been tricked into making me his wife (and who knows of this will happen)….. but this verse still has characteristics that I should be striving for if I desire to be a godly woman.  I realized how much I fail.  I’m not self controlled..  the scale let’s me know that.. I’m messy, so I’m not much of a homemaker.. and  pure?…  ha!..  so much to work on.
