You are beautiful, perfect, and wonderfully made- just the way you are. Perfection is unrealistic; get that out of your head and focus on being the best version of yourself every day. Speaking of that, every day is a fresh start. Don’t be so hard on yourself; everyone makes mistakes. Just because you have a bad day, a bad week, or a bad month, doesn't mean you have a bad life. Be frugal with your money and who you spend your time with. Never depend on someone else for your happiness. And always remember, money will never buy you happiness. However, it’s okay to treat yourself every once in a while. Count your blessings- you have more than you realize. Pray. Every night. And trust Him and his plan for you. The current situation is not your final destination. Go after what you want; nothing will happen if you don’t turn a dream into a plan. If you’re not happy where you live, move. If you hate your job, quit and get another one. Not happy in your relationship, end it. Want to go to Europe, save money and do it. Haven’t seen a friend in a long time, make plans and actually stick to them. But, never estimate the power of a solo Friday night in. A good laugh and a long sleep are the best cures for anything. Be fearlessly and unapologetically yourself. If he can’t handle you at your worst, he doesn’t deserve you at your best. On that note, never settle. Do you hair, get full glam, and rock a killer outfit- for you! Girl, you are worth more than gold.
