She played her music louder, she walked prouder. She realized she wasn’t a drop inside the ocean, she was the whole damn ocean inside a drop.
All the things you dislike about yourself now are not going to be fixed by someone else.
Loving yourself means that you are gentle with yourself. You don’t spend months feeling insecure after you make a small mistake. You don’t tear yourself apart for saying or doing the wrong thing. You forgive yourself. You accept yourself.
Promise to be so strong that you will outshine those who do not see your brilliance. Promise to be so free that no one can look at you and not see a beautiful, unbound life.
Learn to love who you are now. Look at the positive side of things, your journey, the steps you’ve taken to reach the place you have today.
The most beautiful people wear their hearts on their sleeves, their souls in their smiles, and pureness in their eyes.
I loved the moments where you disrobed that fierce masculinity to show me the softness, a gift of vulnerability that showed me you felt safe with me.
For four years, I was that #fitspo account you loved to hate. I was the girl sharing bikini selfies telling you to workout. I shared my impossibly hard workout videos and encouraged you to join me.
I hope that your love walks tall with your heart on their sleeve.
It was at this moment that I realized that I needed to take control of my life.
