I hope that when you wake up in the morning, slowly make your way out of bed, and stumble in front of the mirror; i hope that you love the person staring back at you with sleepy eyes.
i hope you glance over the tiny imperfections. the small bumps, the scar above your upper lip, the slightly crooked tooth, the wild brow. i hope you notice these imperfections as unique characteristics of who you are. i hope that you wish no hate upon yourself for being you.
and then, i hope that you do whatever you need to feel the most comfortable and beautiful in your own skin. swipe on your mascara and your lipstick. brush your hair away from your eyes. curl your hair, leave it be, put on a full face of makeup, or pull on a cap. then i hope that you do not apologize to anyone for doing what you need to feel your best.
the last thing i ask of you is that you take a deep breath, go outside, and enjoy life in that beautiful skin of yours. remember who you are, love yourself unconditionally, and continue to project the unique light that only you can portray.
