Today, I woke up a little late. I didn't wear any make-up; I didn't do my hair. I felt pretty for the first time in a long time.
Today, I wasn't afraid to raise my hand in class. I asked questions when I didn't understand. I answered the teachers' questions. I wanted to learn.
Today, I wasn't afraid to smile at everyone I saw. I helped people I barely know.
Today, I went to a playground and played on the swing set. Today, my smiles and laughs weren't fake. Today, I felt like me.
Today, I didn't argue with my parents. I ran with my dog. I didn't bring my phone or my iPod. I wore denim capris, an old white T-shirt, white socks, and sneakers. I felt like a kid again.
All of my worries, concerns, and insecurities were gone. Just like that. I didn't care what people thought of my silly, childish grin. I didn't care what people thought. You want to know why? It's because I felt beautiful, confident, and innocent again. I felt like a little girl with dreams of becoming a princess.
Today was amazing.
