I just saw this on a Facebook picture. 
And I have to say, it's exactly what I needed to read.
Today has not been the best day ever, as a consequence of being very, very sick last night so feeling horribly tired and shakey I missed out on an action packed day, and stayed in bed. Which was exactly at the point where my mind decided to start thinking about just about everything... cue tears!

I'm happy to say that after a good cry, a chat with Papa (God) and some supportive words from some of the most important girls in my life, I'm feeling happier and more content. 

But reading the words of the beautiful, amazing Audrey Hepburn. (Who, I once dressed up as... Ala, Breakfast at Tiffany's) gave me even more hope. 

Facebook is probably the worst for self esteem, it's easy to get caught up in a cheeky facebook stalk, and instantly compare all your flaws to the girls who don't seem to have a sing;e bad picture tagged of them, or look at everyone's relationship statuses as justification that you are the only single person in the whole world (an irrational crisis I had earlier this week) but actually, all these things aren't helping us to beautiful, self- (not arrogance) and happiness is sexy. Let's be honest, who really wants to be with someone who can say.. Yeah, she's pretty but... she's miserable all the time and boring as sin. Not me, thank you!

So isn't it time we actually stopped worrying so much? I'm not saying don't make an effort, I'm all for not being able to leave the house with mascara and have recently become attached to my pale pink lipstick. But make an effort for yourself, for your happiness and confidence. If you feel most confident in the baggiest trackies, zero make up and hair scraped back. Then go girl! I'm impressed! 
But just be happy, be strong, be confident. 
Be a woman! and go get them!

and finally, in the words of Audrey, sung by Fleetwood Mac and more recently by Glee:
Don't stop, thinking about tomorrow,
Don't stop, it'll soon be here,
It'll be, better than before,
Yesterday's gone, yesterday's gone.
