Why is that? Why can't I say that I am beautiful? When did it become taboo to have confidence in the person that God has so lovingly made me?
The ladies behind Speak Now are here to change that. I have watched this organization grow since their early beginnings, and their goal of female empowerment could not be more necessary in today's world. We are doing a link up in these early days of May and posting loud and proud to share with the world why we are ALL beautiful inside and out.
So here I am. Poised at my computer, ready to type why I believe that I am beautiful and share it with the world. Fingers crossed ya'll wont judge me too much.
I am beautiful. . . .
...because I cry every time that I laugh.
...because I volunteer to do more than I can handle just to make sure there is always enough help.
...because I am passionately goal driven.
...because I love with my whole heart.
...because I sing along obnoxiously loud to my favorite songs in the car.
...because I work damn hard.
...because I am a hard core Harry Potter lover.
...because I trust others.
...because I am a woman and I embrace my curves, and my appetite.
...because I am flawed.
...because I don't give up.
...because I can admit it when I'm wrong.
...because I have the confidence to start my own business at 20, and the perseverance to make it work.
...because I am creative and constantly inspired.
...because I am not afraid to say so...
I am beautiful, and so are you.
