true beauty is being you. who are you? listen to yourself, feel you from your heart and your gut. when you are being authentically you, it is effortless; even in the midst of opposition. you simply feel right.
yes, of course, we all have commonalities as human beings. even if “you are 1 in a million, on a planet of 7 billion, there are 7,000 others like you”* only you have your exact fingerprints, your exact smile, eyes, hair pattern, etc. there are still a million ways in which you are uniquely you. so why attempt to be like everyone one else when you already are in generic ways. it is so those little quirks, flaws, perfectly perfect imperfections that make you, YOU.
…and ultimately, You Are Beautiful Just As You Are (YABJAYA)
