The question isn’t whether the world is perfect.
The real question to consider is: If it were, would you still be in it?
A girl who truly knows herself is a girl that everybody else wants to know.
The power to live long is by learning to appreciate & show gratitude to providence for today’s life.

Leave your hair natural. Let your beard grow out. Leave the makeup in the bag. Wear comfortable clothes. Stop worrying so much about your looks and start looking around you. You have missed so much beauty trying to become beautiful. You have missed your own worth trying to become worthy. Let the mask break open. Let it lie on the floor. Let yourself be seen. Let yourself see.
