Life is full of beautiful reasons to be happy. Sometimes we just have to look a little harder for them. But I promise, they're there.
When you hate yourself, hate your body, hate your life, you won’t do what is good for you. You won’t pursue what is good, noble, pure and praiseworthy. You may start out with good intentions, but self-hate will always self-sabotage. It's time to put an END to that self-hate!
I will never forget the anger I felt that day, as the history I learned about in school became real. 11 million innocent people were killed because SOMEBODY ELSE decided they didn't deserve to live. Somebody else decided they were inferior. Dirty. Untouchable. Unlovable. A blemish on the face of the human race. So today, we remember.
There is nothing more beautiful, more captivating, more amazing than the freedom to be who God created you to be. So be you. Be totally and completely, 100%, unapologetically you.
We live in a day and age when ANYONE can throw a video up on YouTube and call themselves an expert. I was NOT about to become another "wannabe expert" talking about something I don't have experience or expertise in… So, I sought out the REAL expert!
"You are beautiful." How do you feel when you hear those words? Do you believe them? I didn't...until now.
I was sitting on the floor of my dorm room closet, leaning against the closed door. My entire body shook violently as hot tears streamed down my face. "What the hell have I done?" I asked myself. "Who have I become?"
I think I'm finally learning what it means to be truly grateful…for family, for love, for life. My heart is heavy, but it is thankful. My heart is hurting, but it is blessed beyond measure.
