You don't need to be beautiful, you ARE beautiful. We were born beautiful, and despite all the growth, nothing about our innate beauty has changed. I'd say, own that. Know your beauty. Be sure you're the one defining what that is. And, dare to look beyond flesh and bone. But dare to love the beauty of your body too. It's all kinda necessary.-Heather
Life is unpredictable. It changes with the seasons. Even your coldest winter happens for the best of reasons. And though it feels eternal, like all you'll ever do is freeze. I promise spring is coming and with it, brand new leaves. (poem and picture by Erin Hanson)
If you cannot be a poet, be the poem. Erin Hanson: My favourite thing to do is compare people to the universe, because maybe it will make you stop for a second and wonder why you think you're not beautiful when you know the universe is.
Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life. Proverbs 4:23 If we're being hurt over & over it's important we guard our own hearts, minds & lives so we aren't entering into sin ourselves, be it with anger, bitterness, resentment, gossip or unforgiveness.
