reflections



i flossed.
i brushed.
i flossed again. {i'm weird like that.}
i bobby-pinned my bangs.
i washed my face in lukewarm tap water.
i exfoliated. {*not that it does a bit of good.}

i took a hard look in the mirror.
at me. [with no makeup.]

i saw a girl who has recently started recognizing herself for the first time.
i saw a girl who is still a little uncomfortable with that vulnerability.
i saw a girl who is desperately trying to remember that what other people think of her is none of her business.
i saw a girl who is learning from her setbacks.
i saw a girl who truly believes in her heart "all things shall work together for {her} good."
i saw a girl who knows both fear & faith, heartache & joy, insecurity & confidence.
i saw a girl who's hopeful.

i saw me.
