Validation-that is the one thing I have always clung to, waiting, searching and needing someone else but me to tell me I was OK to accept myself. It may sound cliché but that has been my truth. But now I know better, that I don’t need to hope someone thought me beautiful for it to be real or true. I tell myself that every day now, I am smart, intelligent and beautiful in every sense of the word. I may not be a COVER girl but I am COVER worthy. I am Enough. I am God’s MASTERPIECE. Frame that.
