Please tell me sometimes you look in the mirror and admire how beautiful you are. You take the time to stare and behold your beauty, even if just for a moment. The feeling may be fleeting but it would have been present nonetheless, and everyone should be able to say that at one point or another, they saw themselves as beautiful.

There will be days you will paint yourself as ugly, unaware that the paint you use is water based and can be washed away but what remains is truly something beautiful. You are truly something beautiful. You are a masterpiece; not even Van Gogh could have thought up something more beautiful than you. That ideal image you strive to be, you are her. You are her! So you go on being you, with your beautiful self.

Song of Solomon 1:15 How beautiful you are, my darling, how beautiful! Your eyes are like doves. (NLT)
