tomorrow morning


hey.
tomorrow morning when you brush your teeth,
scrunched over the sink, 
looking like death,
remember that you're beautiful.

don't say no.
don't hide
or cover up
or run away.

remember that you are powerful and brave.
remember that you are flawed yet perfect.
know that you carry light that can brighten the darkest of places.

so you,
you beautiful soul,
stand tall.
take a deep breath.
exhale.
today, remember who you are.

you




Hey you. You, the girl with the pretty eyes.
You, the girl with the kind heart.
You, the girl with the inclusive sprit.
Yes you.

Why do you question your purpose?
Why do you think you are not enough?
Who told you that you were ugly? That you weren't beautiful?


Girls, these are some of the biggest lies we can buy into. And you know what? That's what they are- lies. Lies we are bombarded with every time we buy something at the grocery store.  They show up in our movies. In our friends. We are part of an insecure generation of girls.


Girls, why do we build huge walls all around us, protecting us from who-knows-what? Why do we compare ourselves with the superficial images at the checkout line in the grocery store? We wrestle with inadequacy, fear and self conciseness. We wish our lives looked different. More PB teen, less crushed granola bars.  

But ladies, I cannot say it enough.
You are valuable.
You are enough.
You are more then all of this.
You have worth.
A ultimate, never-changing, more-then-you-know, big, huge, and un-imaginable value.

Let's make a change ladies.
