that's turning into a woman
and doesn't know if she's doing this whole thing right.
You are not alone.
You're not the only one afraid of speaking up,
not the only one afraid to show what's inside.
In a world like this, it's really very much easier said than done to just be yourself.
In fact, it's terrifying.
In fact, I think it should be considered an act of braveness.
To be yourself, unapologetically, unafraid, unashamed, I think that's really cool.
Not allowing the world to change you is a very hard thing.
But it's also a very, very important thing.
The world needs to know the greatness that is you,
the wind, carrying your breathing,
the moon, familiar with your tilted up face,
the sun, rejoicing in your laughter.
Don't be afraid to show,
don't be afraid to speak,
don't be afraid to stand up,
don't be afraid to grow,
don't afraid to fight for what's right,
don't be afraid to laugh ridiculously loud,
don't be afraid to cry your heart out.
There are so many lovely and exciting things in days that lay ahead of you.
more lazy Saturday mornings,
heart to heart's,
falling in love,
finding a lipstick that you adore,
Friday afternoons spent with friends,
new favourite movies and new favourite songs,
quotes that fit your soul,
cups of tea,
sunglasses on a sunny day,
heavy scent of flowers in the air,
listening to the sound of the ocean waves,
iced coffee with your mum in the mall,
shopping with your sister,
reading a good book,
learning something new,
overcoming a fear,
hugs from little brothers,
getting stuff done and being proud of yourself,
real genuine smiles,
jeans that suit you,
breakfast in bed,
writing a letter,
raw midnight talks,
painting your nails light blue,
learning to love yourself.
Hang on, hang in there.
It's worth it. I promise.
