The title seems a bit extra, doesn’t it? But that was necessary for what I am trying to convey here.
So, it was my 18th birthday two days ago. (You can wish in the comments btw). Naturally, it was a big day and I was all excited and it went as amazingly as I expected. But my favourite part of the day was when I woke up in the morning, looked in the mirror and suddenly went “whoa, I look f***ing gorgeous”, I literally said that in my head. (I don’t usually use curse words, but I think it’s allowed when you are talking to yourself, is it?)
This might not seem like a big deal if you are a confident person and comfortable with your body (and that’s amazing, congrats) but for someone that always has someone negative to say about herself (that’s me), this is real progress. I was so proud of this that I decided to write about it.
Don’t believe me? Try it yourself. When you wake up tomorrow, go straight up to the mirror and look at yourself, but not with a judgemental attitude, just admire yourself, gaze at those eyes and that graceful smile, embrace your soul and just fall in love. Then accept your beauty, say it out loud, not with pity but proudly, like you mean it.
And nobody else can look at you like yourself. Why? Because others can just see your face, but you know your mind and soul too, fall in love with that, with your soul.
