to every girl...








"Freckles"




I used to care so much about what others think about


Almost didn’t have a thought of my own


The slightest remark would make me embark


On the journey of self doubt


But that was a while ago


This girl has got stronger


If I knew then what I know now


I would have told myself don’t worry any longer it's OK


'cause a face without freckles is like a sky without stars


Why waste a second not loving who you are


Those little imperfections make you beautiful, lovable, valuable,


They show your personality inside your heart


Reflecting who you are


I wondered if I could trade my body with somebody else in magazines


Would the whole world full at my feet


I phantom worthy and would blame my failures on the ugliness I could see


When the mirror looked at me


Sometimes I feel like the little girl who doesn’t belong in her own world


But I'm getting better


And I'm reminding myself


That a face without freckles is like a sky without stars


Why waste a second not loving who you are


Those little imprefections make you beautiful, lovable, valuable,


They show your personality inside your heart


Reflecting who you are


Reflecting who you are
~these are the lyrics from a song by Natasha Bedingfield called "freckles"... I love it. Just thought it was something all us girls could use to hear, and be reminded of! I hope as I raise my girls I instill this message into their hearts!
