Life

isn’t always easy

for a girl

Do you feel like you have to be

the smartest, the loudest, the boldest

to be heard?

 

coconuts manzanillo

 

the prettiest, the sexiest, the chicest

to be seen?

the most generous, most compliant, most selfless

to be loved?

Do you know

that it is enough

to just be you?

When you look in the mirror and are blinded by what you want to change

know that you are beautiful

When you feel anxious, scared, stuck

know that you are strong

When your heart is breaking over the wrong job, the wrong man, the wrong life

know that you can let go. There is so much more ahead of you.

If what is outside pulls you down

look inside and lift yourself up

 

palm trees arrecife

 

Because you are already perfect.

You are already whole.

You. Are.
