everyday i will be grateful for my life
with every pitfall i will strive
to make and do the best I can because
i am beautiful
i am going to get nails done
i am going to ride my bike
i am going out to dinner with friends
im going to enjoy myself and not be stressed
each day a new chance to open up
to wake up happy
in my own skin
i am who i am
proud and strong doing the best i can
