Have you ever just looked at someone and thought, “I really love you”. They’re just talking or humming or watching a movie or reading a book or laughing or something, and there’s something about them in that moment that makes you think, “I just really love you”
One day I won’t be this skinny. Will that make me less beautiful? How heartbreaking if my or your beauty is confined to a word like skinny, curvy, hot, or sexy. Those are words and words like this are flat and never tell the whole story. Bodies change and vary and are unique. I won’t always look the way I look…and because of that, I can’t ever base my worth of my physical appearance…and neither can you.
Recognize the beauty of your spirit instead. Your physical body will change, it will shrivel up, it will wrinkle, it will die. Mine will too. Physical beauty will mean nothing then. What will matter is the way you giggle, the twinkle in your eye when you understand contentment, the warmth others feel when they speak with you, and the love you radiate when you walk in a room. Cultivate those things. I promise there are millions of things about you that are beautiful…don’t ever trade them in for a physical attribute. Your spirit is lovely and smart and passionate and daring, sweet friend. Don’t forget it.

1. Your skin may never be perfect, and that’s okay.
2. Life is too short not to have the underwear, the coffee, and the haircut you want.
3. Everyone (including your family, your coworkers, and your best friend) will talk about you behind your back, and you’ll talk about them too. It doesn’t mean you don’t love each other.
4. It’s okay to spend money on things that make you happy.
5. Sometimes without fault or reason, relationships deteriorate. It will happen when you’re six, it will happen when you’re sixty. That’s life."
If the rest of the world was blind except you, would you still take pictures, wear make up, get dressed, work out, go on hikes, travel, get tattoos…? How much of what we do is for others rather than for ourselves?
