Broken strings & Pretty things

The world, seen through a young girl's eyes.

Be who you want to be.

This is your life. Are you who you want to be?

Can you look at yourself and know that you’re the person who you aim to be? Or do you merely see a stranger in the reflection?
Can you say you make all the decisions in your life? Or do you let someone decide for you?
Are you living your life? Or are you drifting through it all?
Are you doing what you want? Or are you changing your life depending on what others think and want for you?

Life is too short to pretend to be someone you’re not. It’s too short to live by comparison to others. It’s time to step out and actually live the life you’ve dreamed of, instead of the life others have planned for you. It’s time to be that beautiful and lovely person you really are, the person who has always been inside, yet has been too timid to venture into the real world.

So I pray that when you next see yourself, you will see greatness. You will see the perfectly formed and unique individual you are, who was destined to follow your dreams. And if you don’t see that person, I pray that you will have the courage to change. The courage to stand up to the world and tell them who you really are, and who you want to be. There are so many tomorrows, and every one of them is a new day to change.
Don’t leave it too late.
Be who you want to be.
