You can wake up, run a comb through your hair and go on with your day.
You can spend an hour every day putting each hair exactly where you want it.
You are beautiful!

You can apply make-up every day.
You can walk by the beauty section of the store without a glance.
You are beautiful!

You can wear hand-me-down clothes until they are thread-bare.
You can buy expensive designer clothes.
You are beautiful!

You can exercise for hours a day.
You can never see the inside of a gym.
You are beautiful!

People can tell you that you are absolutely gorgeous.
People can make jokes at your expense.
You are beautiful!

You are beautiful!

I wrote this piece to give to my daughter when she is going through that very tough adolescent phase of life.
