While competing for my titles, I met some wonderful young women. When we were together it was clear to me that the crown could be given to any individual. Whenever we chat via facebook, etc. they call me queen and I also call them queen. It’s all about perception. How do you view yourself? Do you truly understand your value, your worth, your ability to be in charge? Do your actions and the decisions you make confirm your understanding? If not, you can start today. I have learned so much about myself in such a short time. I’ve overcome fears and I’ve made decisions and have been privileged to do so many things that I am proud of. All of these things have been possible because I’ve changed my way of thinking. You cannot believe that you are average and then achieve extraordinary things. I believe that you have what it takes to do what you want to do. No individual has been created without gifts and talents. As women, we do not just have literal wombs but also figurative wombs that can birth creative ideas, businesses, and so much more. It just all starts with how we think. Today, you must say, “I am a queen.” You can go about your daily affairs knowing that you have what it takes to rule. Being a queen has nothing to do with being the boss of other people’s lives. It’s about what you’re doing with your independence and freedom. It’s about how you choose to live and the legacy you decide to leave.
Now, I think it is important for me to stress where my confidence comes from. Not only do I believe in myself because of my parents, friends, and family that encourage me but most importantly, I believe that God Almighty has created me in His likeness and image. Through His Son, Jesus Christ, I can do all things. His Word confirms my importance by telling me that I am fearfully and wonderfully made (Psalm 139:14), I am royal in God’s sight (1 Peter 2:9), and He has great plans for my life (Jeremiah 29:11). This is the truth I hold on to and I believe that all of the things I’ve listed apply to you.
You have all that it takes to rule, wherever you are. If you never wear a crown, if you never wear a sash, it is important to always remember that you are a queen material girl.
