Dear Reader

I hope one day you see yourself as beautiful.

I hope you look in the mirror and smile at

all your spots, all the memories tacked

around your body. All the experiences you’ve

had that have made you who you are today.

I hope you aren’t afraid to smile. I hope you

aren’t afraid to cry. I hope you aren’t afraid

to laugh, to be honest, to let go of those who

hurt you. I hope you try new things and fail and

I hope that you get back up and try again because

it isn’t the mistakes that make you but the lessons

you learn from those journeys, the paths you take

that make you care deeper, love harder, appreciate

the little things like the way your hair shines under

the moonlight or the way your feet patter in the rain.

I hope you find joy in the moments where you are

alone. I hope you find joy in the moments where

you are with friends, with family, with those who

care about you. I hope you see the world from

the eyes of a wise child, curious and smart. And

I hope one day you see yourself as beautiful.
