Childhood meets adulthood. Passing down. Passing up. The world is bitter, you have to know how to handle it. You have to be ready. Nothing will prepare you for the world, but the world. Don’t let your life be like the dust. What good are you? Heaven only knows, but you can try to find out. Are you willing to take risks? What gives you permission? What makes you the best you? How do all the qualities make you the best you? How can you communicate that level of confidence to others? You are powerful. You are strong. You are healed. You can do this. You are a woman. You are blessed. You are you.
