Dear Boys and Girls of the World,

There are a few things that I think you need to know. The things that you aren't going to find in a textbook or a church or maybe even your own home. There is power in the do's and the don'ts in this world. And it is imperative to know the difference.

Don't apologize for your wildness.

Don't apologize for your voice.

Or what makes you different.

Or what makes you the same.

Don't apologize for your style

And your smile

And all that makes you feel alive.

Don't apologize for saying no.

Or yes.

Don't ignore your gut instincts

Or the things that make the hair on your neck stand tall

Or the things that make you feel fear before any other emotion.

There is an endless strength in listening to what makes you afraid.

Please do not blanket your fear.

You are not alone.

If you have never felt at home in the body that you are born with

you can grant yourself the strength, courage and power to change it.

Your body is yours. Your mind is yours. Your soul is yours.

Love out loud so long as you love yourself first.

You owe nothing to anyone.

If no one listens do not give up.

Do. Not. Give. Up.

You have a voice and a choice

and you deserve to be heard.

Please don't apologize or make excuses for the people that weigh you down and tear you apart.

It doesn't matter if this person is blood, honey or water.

They have no right.

You do.

Burying your own secrets has the power to break us.

And you have far more important things to break:





Own that voice.

Scream if you have to.

Whisper if you must.

Just don't be silent.

Be who you are.

Release the you that demands to be seen.

You are worthy of so much.

You are a spark in this world.

You bring the light.

You overcome the dark.

This is your time, your story, your stage.

Your life.

The world is ready for you.
