(in)courage: An Open Letter To The Girl In The Dressing Room.


Precious girl, 
I don't know if you meant to weep that loudly or not.  I'm not sure if those were quiet sobs that had reached the point of no return, or if this was actually your way of pulling back the curtain on your pain for all to see - 
what the mirror has done, 
the lies it has told you, 
the way it has limited and so poorly defined you....



I'm deeply honored to be blogging at (in)courage today about the need for true beauty in this world. 
Would you bring your friends and meet me there
for the rest of this story? 

{I'm praying it changes the way 
we all look in the mirror...}

This was such a beautiful post! It made me think of the countless times I've seen other women and admired the unique beauty God gave them and wondered if they knew it too. And I wonder how we might all be different if we spoke what we saw, even if it's through a dressing room wall. ;)
