This girl

This girl is sometimes shy.

This girl wants to be beautiful.

Sometimes this girl gets scared.

This girl knows what it's like to be lonely.

This girl is sometimes faking it.

This girl has trouble believing in herself.

But this girl is trying to fix it.

This girl is in love with words.

This girl wants to be a writer.

This girl will do whatever it takes.

This girl didn't believe in happiness.

This girl is beginning to change her mind.

This girl wants to fall in love.

This girl is willing to take the risk.

This girl doesn't want you to worry.

This girl is going to make it.

This girl is stronger than she thinks.

This girl, this girl, this girl is going to be just fine.

No words, yet. I'm still absorbing your thoughts. But I wanted you to know I was here.

Sometimes we all need to be reminded of these things. It's an affirmation.

At least, it is for this girl. Thank you.

Thanks, you guys. That's what this girl needed to hear.


And Scott, I meant I was faking happiness but yeah, we do fake other stuff too. :P

Love love love your manifesto! It's the line drawn in the sand moment--it says I know who I am and this is where I'm going.

You go, girl!

Thanks, I'm glad you liked it. It was another one of those random moments where my train of thought just went on its own. That happens a lot.
