Beauty is strength

seventeen!

“The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It’s the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows, and the beauty of a woman only grows with passing years.”

The power of forgiveness

the first-timer's guide to

The act of forgiveness is beyond powerful. Forgiveness allows you to see people for all they are, and see yourself for who you are, and through this clear understanding of humanity and this new form awareness, you can make the decision to let go or to let in. It is about letting go of the resentment you feel when thinking about the person that hurt you, it is about letting go of the fears you feel inside when you took the wrong turn, it is about believing that the decision(s) you make to help yourself grow are the right ones. In order to truly forgive someone else, you need to forgive yourself.
