I am both a masterpiece and a work in progress.

I’ve done amazing things and have got more in store.

Some days can be pretty hard but finding something to do that makes me happy makes it worthwhile. I am worth my own while.

I am loved and supported by the people around me.

I can be myself in any situation, and have no reason to fear that.

My body is beautiful, a form that only I have, and I can do great things with it. With my body, I have felt warm sun rays, cooling waves, fluffy blankets, dry summer breezes. I have felt kisses from people I love, and been able to return those affections. I love my body because I’ve experienced great things with it, and it’s features are mine and mine only.

How I use my time, and my performance is not a definition of who I am as a person. I know I am passionate about what I love, and curious to learn more. I am kind, and always work to help others. I’ve always cared about justice and what is right. This won’t change.

My situation, and even my personality may change, but I will always be valid, worth others’ time and worthy of love, including my own love.
