To be honest, I try really hard to be happy or look happy. And for the most part, I am. But right now, I'm at a low point in my life... again. I really wish I wasn't (but I have no control over this one). Behind these brown eyes, I'm trying to stay strong and hold back my tears. Honestly, I don't think I'm strong enough.
Today, I just want to be someone who is happy. For some reason, getting ready and looking my best makes me feel better about myself. I feel confident and beautiful. So if spending more time in the morning will make me happy, well that's what I'm going to do.
In the words of Plato: "be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle".
