Tell her she is all together lovely, no matter the dress she wears or if her skin is bare be it normally powdered and pressed. Tell her she is fabulous even in her fierceness, her vulnerability, when the mystery falls like rain to the soil. Tell her she is powerful when her shoulders slump under the pressure, when her back breaks from the burden she carries.
Tell her beauty isn't what she does or does not see in the mirror. No, it is what grows within her, escaping to bless others, only though her weakness, the very cracks that perfect her; the brokenness that forms the substance of her identity, where her strength becomes true and her purpose, clear as daylight.

What is the goal? What are the words that will be written on your tombstone? What legacy do you want to leave behind?
All the fussing about how we look, how we feel, what we have, as we try and approach a sense of beauty, or even the fuss about how our lives look...
Choosing to believe something wonderful about yourself is more than just a feel-good notion. It is a life-making, DNA building, neurological pathway pioneering mode of a proactive lifestyle. It is survival.
Over the last month I have been trying to get back into the groove of things.

It is one thing to seek freedom for our own life; to let go of things holding us back. But it is on a whole new level of maturity, dignity and integrity to be able to take full responsibility for our own happiness, releasing people from any expectations we hold over them –to set them free.
