My freshmen year in highschool, I've decided not to turn into those girls that sit there and look over everybody and smirk at the ones that they feel are ugly. Very quickly I turned myself around as soon as I saw myself getting to that and instead remembered, as a child, being taught everything has beauty in it. Even if you can't see it. So Everyone should feel beautiful. I know it's easier said than done, but it's better to feel this way than not.
i hope you feel beautiful today
couldn't have said it better myself.
A fact of which I'm all too aware due to having lost many loved ones, and why this week was and will be the only time I celebrate my 29th birthday (as opposed to my calling every birthday from here on out another "29th")... I welcome 30, 31, 40, etc., because each year is a gift. Celebrate your age!
I'll try to remember this later.
