As. you. are.
Stronger than you know.
More beautiful than you think.
Worthier than you believe.
More loved than you can ever imagine.
Passionate about making a difference.
Fiery when protecting those you love.
Learning. Growing. Not alone.
Warm. Giving. Generous.
Quirky. Sexy. Funny. Smart.
Flawed. Whole. Scared. Brave.
And so, so, so.much.more.

Be Strong. Be Confident. Be You.

A Stranger’s Smile

Where do you draw courage,
When in the midst of drifters?
Do you shy than encourage,
Than seek a friend from this strangers?
Do you ever stop and glance,
To find a face you like?
Or do you happen to chance,
A smile that surely strikes?
Somehow I did – and boy I saw,
Your friendly face and smile,
That there hint no such flaw,
Only gentleness not guile.
A smile that surely shows,
Its power to touch a heart.
Though little else you know,
I thank you from the start,
A moment to remember by –
When you smiled.

I’m a different person now;

Pain shaped me to be who I am.

The lesson we’re yesterday’s tears;

If someone would try to stitch my heart back,

They would find some pieces missing,

Yet if anyone would be patient enough to wait,

They would see that in time, 

I can be whole again.
