12) pour your heart out in two paragraphs.


"all my life i have been looking for something, and everywhere i turned someone tried to tell me what it was. i accepted their answers too, though they were often in contradiction and even self-contradictory. i was naive. i was looking for myself and asking everyone but myself questions which i, and only i, could answer. it took me a long time and much painful boomeranging of my expectations to achieve a realization everyone else appears to have been born with: that i am nobody but myself."
-Ralph Ellison

believing in yourself is so much more than the love of what you see in the mirror. it's having the courage to disregard the criticisms and handle the gossip. it's about standing your ground, even when you have to stand alone.
-me, myself, and i.

and that is what i believe.
-shine on,
glitter girl.
