Today I will lay
on the floor with my arms out.
Somewhere along the way
I forgot how to take up space,
but I am slowly stretching out again.
I am allowed to exist
at my fullest,
and if I do not fit in you,
I will find somewhere I do.
Glowing up isn’t about hating yourself and wanting to change. It’s about loving yourself enough to want to improve yourself. It’s about giving yourself the things you deserve and it’s about feeling that you’re worthy. So, here’s a mini challenge for you all: Whenever you decide to do something like change your diet, drink more water or develop your skin routine, don’t do it because you feel ugly or overweight. Instead, look at what doing those things will do for you. Drinking water will clear your skin up, give you more energy and improve your gut health, eating healthy will give you more energy mentally and physically etc. Don’t focus on the negatives, focus on the positives and forgive yourself because you won’t always make the healthy choices and you don’t need to be hard on yourself for that. We’re all works in progress. You all deserve the best in life.

You must know the reason why she is silent. You must trace her weakest spots. You must write to her. You must remind her that you are there. You must know how long it takes for her to give up. You must be there to hold her when she is about to.
You must love her because many have tried and failed. And she wants to know that she is worthy to be loved, that she is worthy to be kept.
