She woke up one morning. Walked into her balcony. The sun was gleaming through the chilly morning wind, right into her eyes.
The dance in those eyes said to her,
“You, my girl, are young. You are wild. You are free. Don’t you ever let anything make you feel any less powerful! You must be your own hero. You must be strong and lift that head high while you walk through the crowd. They’re going to say you’re fat or too thin, you’re too dark or too fair, you’re too tall or too short, you’re too shy or too slutty, but hey! What does your heart say to you? Listen to it. Very carefully. Maybe close your eyes. It’s tells you how magnificent you are! It says that no matter what you want to achieve, you are going to! Yes. You’re going to look. Aim. And shoot. Bullseye! There’s nothing you can’t achieve. Nothing. Don’t let fate write in the book of your life. Step out, step forward, and carve your future. It’s never too late, never too early. The setting is always right.”
She took a long breath.
This was the best conversation of her life.
