A Beautiful Mess

“As she almost collapsed to the ground, she stopped and looked around: she looked at herself and said, “What a mess you are,” but what a beautiful mess, it’s called strength. You are black and blue, scared and exhausted. But I am proud of you at how far you have come, and you didn’t give up, you have been through a lot. She recognized how much strength already existed inside her, and how much strength she had gained along the way. She stood up tall, even though she was tired, hungry, and exhausted, putting one foot in front of the other, she continued on her journey.”
