This, this is about my own some-day daughter. When you approach me, already stung-stayed with insecurity, begging, “Mom, will I be pretty? Will I be pretty?” I will wipe that question from your mouth like cheap lipstick and answer, “No! The word pretty is unworthy of everything you will be, and no child of mine will be contained in five letters.
“You will be pretty intelligent, pretty creative, pretty amazing. But you, will never be merely ‘pretty’.”Katie Makkai “Pretty” (via harukimuracallme)
I hope you found more reasons to smile today than you did yesterday. I hope you had a wonderful sleep, saw a good movie, ate your favorite meal, had great conversations, or did something new and exciting. I hope today was a better day than yesterday and may tomorrow be even better.
