Be a Pineapple. Stand tall. Wear a crown. Be sweet on the inside. Is that not just divine? Ever since I first saw this phrase on Instagram it spoke volumes to me.
How to be a pineapple
Pineapples are sturdy don’t you think? Standing tall and alone like a pineapple means that you are not allowing yourself to feel defeated. You are trusting in God and standing tall in the face of adversity and doubt. There’s a wonderful saying that says instead of faking it just faith it!
Remind yourself that what you are going through now is temporary and will not overwhelm you (Isaiah 43:2). Stand tall with a confidence that can only come from God.
Standing tall means knowing who you are and staying the course. Don’t conform to what others are doing if you feel you should be different. It’s those differences that makes you who you are.
Wear a crown
Women will always take care of everyone else first before themselves. Being there for others is good but you are also important. Make yourself a priority and believe that you are valued. Don’t let anyone knock your confidence. Wear your figurative crown on your head and know that you are someone special. Pamper yourself, groom, eat well and dress sharp. Don’t be timid, be bold. A pineapple does not have a tiny little crown but a tall one that stands up very high above the actual pineapple making it seem majestic!
Remind yourself that you are “wonderfully and fearfully made” (Psalm 139:14).
Be sweet on the inside
The most interesting thing about a pineapple is it’s misleading appearance. It’s a perfect example that looks can be deceiving.
On the outside a pineapple can be described as tough, prickly, beautiful, strong and hard. On the inside is a whole different story! On the inside a pineapple is super sweet.
For the Lord sees not as man sees: man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart.” 1 Samuel 16:7
Appearance don’t really matter only how you are on the inside. Being sweet and kind to people and also sweet to yourself is what counts. The world would be a much better place if we could all be more like a pineapple.
