What are you looking for?

Today I am looking at the world in a different view. Yes i know you have read this story before. But right now I am happier than I have been for a long time. With finals coming up, and death in my eyes, I felt like there was no solution to the sadness I had felt. I knew that I am not perfect, but the idea's of how I can constantly be better really hurt me. My body has never been perfect so I am always thinking about what I look like. But realizing that I have some of the most amazing people in my life reminded me of just how lucky I am. Yes I know that death comes, and it happens to everyone, but I need to be living my life to it's fullest potential. I also need to realize that my body does not have to be exactly perfect, I need to love who I am and stay positive. I don't know if I will fall back into the pit of darkness I have been stuck in for the past few weeks; and it probably will happen again, but for now I am happy and I am celebrating life.
To all the girls out there...
"i want to apologize to all the women
i have called pretty
before i've called them intelligent or brave
i am sorry i made it sound as though
something as simple as what you're born with
is the most you have to be proud of when your
spirit has crushed mountains
from now on i will say things like
you are resilient or you are extraordinary
not because i don't think you are pretty
but because you are so much more than that" -rupi kaur
