i am.

Breathe in: I

Breathe out: AM

I am Melissa. I am not perfect. I am allowed to have bad days. I am allowed to celebrate good days. I am allowed to get mad and cry. I am allowed to sing, dance and play.

I am not my weight. I am not my height. I am not defined by my physical being.

I am a woman with a warm soul. I am a woman with a compassionate heart. I am a woman with insecurities.

I am allowed to get stressed. I am allowed to get upset. I am allowed to laugh at my own jokes. I am free to feel joy and happiness. I am free to express myself. I am entitled to feel the way I feel without owing anyone an explanation.

I am passionate. I am kind. I am a fighter. I am a dream chaser. I am motivated and strong. I am not defined by my house, my job or my material possessions. I am unsure about the future, and I am content with that. I am Melissa. I am not perfect. I am good.
