“Beauty is about being comfortable in your own skin, it’s about knowing and accepting who you are.” -Ellen Degeneres
So this marks the first of the 21 lessons that I am posting over the next 21 days leading up to my 21st birthday.
My first lesson I have learned is to Live in YOUR Skin.
I have realized over the past couple of years that I HAVE to have confidence in myself. I am not going to lie, confidence was hard to come by for me. I have “extra love” around the edges, a scar in my left eyebrow, a butt chin, and plenty of other “flaws” I could find if I look in a mirror long enough. I honestly don’t know when I realized this about myself but true beauty really does come from within. I have learned to love my body. Every curve, stretch mark, pimple are unique to me.
So I challenge you to love yourself. Completely. It’s a constant battle, but don’t stop fighting. For you.
