Bright colors among the backdrop of the start of spring calls to mind rebirth, happiness, and celebration. At this point in my life, I'm stronger than ever in how I celebrate myself. I still have some ways to go, as self love is a process, but as my year of being twenty-one comes to a close (as well as my last year of college) I have learned and grown in what it means to celebrate myself: accepting my internalized flaws, not allowing others to define what "beautiful" is, appreciating the knowledge I've gained while working within my FilAm community, and being proud of the growth I've gained in self-confidence due to this self love (and a fun intro to drama class ^_^).
I celebrate you all for being your beautiful selves. Don't let other people tell you otherwise. Let the person you see in the mirror love you back, it's a liberating feeling.
