"Your beauty doesn’t come alive when someone compliments you, it’s always there. Remember that. In order to receive such a compliment, the very thing has to have been present in you before the complimenter arrived. I encourage you to celebrate your beauty. You don’t need a crowd or partner in order to acknowledge, recognize or celebrate your own beauty. Affirm yourself everyday. Tell yourself you’re gorgeous, because you are. Say the words “I’m beautiful” with bold integrity. Live for you. You matter."
