Words to Live and Write by

I am willing to fall Because I have learned how to rise.

I craft Love from heartbreak, Compassion from shame, Grace from disappointment, Courage from failure.

I am among the brave and brokenhearted, and I am rising strong.

 I love this post.
Then I have to ask myself, "Could I do that?" If my beautiful, perfect daughter questions her self-confidence, am I a positive role model for her? Can I look at myself and see a beautiful, perfect woman?
I don't think I can answer "yes" today, but I'm glad I read this now so I can work on it before my girl reaches this age.
