TO BE TIMELESS

TO BE TIMELESS
7C

Classy. Sophisticated. Elegant. Intelligent. Savvy. Beautiful. Kind.

I hold myself to these standards, even on days when I don't feel it.

The words I speak empower my mind. And the power of my mindset, sets the foundation for my path each and every day.

I believe a woman should be picky, very picky, but for all the right reasons. And although that may seem lonely at times, that's how it has to be. Loving yourself that much that you may have to be alone for a while, at least until it's time.

It's not selfish to love yourself, take care of yourself, and make your happiness a priority, it's actually necessary.

You know all those things you always wanted to do?

You should go do them.

And don't worry so much about people; about who likes you and who doesn't. Most people don't even like themselves.

The journey isn't about them, or even becoming a different you. It's about finding yourself if you've been lost. Or loving who you are at this moment in time.

And heartaches, well, what can I say? They hurt. But a broken heart doesn't stop beating. Months will pass you by. And in time you just know something new is about to happen. You slowly let go of what was and trust the magic of what will be. 

Your value doesn't decrease based on someone's inability to see your worth. But it does hurt your self-esteem when [you] don't see your worth.

My message to each and everyone who need this: Beautiful girl you can do anything, but before anyone can love you, you have to love yourself first.
