"People are like stained-glass windows.
They sparkle and shine when the sun is out,
but when the darkness sets in,
their true beauty is revealed only if
there is light from within
To everyone out there,
Be proud of who you are, be proud of your accomplishments, the struggles you have conquered, the successes you've reached, the nay-sayers you've proven yourself to -
Honor the talents in you, the kindness that you show to all who come to you, the love and compassion you share that makes the world a better place.
You are special, one-of-a-kind, you've earned your spot in being born into this world by beating millions of other sperms! (got that from an inspirational book by Zig Ziglar a loooong time ago)-
so acknowledge that.
You deserve to be cherished, respected for all that you are, and all that you represent with yourself, and your life.
You are a woman, worthy of true love, honor and respect.
There's this funky poem entitled "Phenomenal Woman" by Maya Angelou.
Love its ending:
"Cause I'm a woman
Embrace yourself wholeheartedly. Celebrate your beauty, heart and soul.
