You may not be a bearded woman, but you may feel like you don’t belong, that there is no place for you.
Someone might have said unkind words to you; you might feel like you won’t be accepted for who you are.
It is okay to be you. Love who you are now.
Last Friday, at 4:30 pm I went to the Carmike theater to see The Greatest Showman.
Keala Settle, who portrays Lettie Lutz, a bearded woman, sings the song “This Is Me.”. The song, written by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, is the anthem, for the movie The Greatest Showman.
Let this song be your anthem. A song to remind you:
You are lovely as you are.
There is a place for you.
You are who you’re meant to be.
You don’t have to be ashamed of your scars.
You don’t have to be ashamed to be seen.
You don’t have to make apologies.
There is nothing you are not worthy of.
Say, “This is me.”
Love who you are now.
Let this be your theme song too.
Love who you are now. Today. Not when you learn how to draw a realistic cow, finish writing your book, lose ten pounds, clean out your basement, or when your hair grows out and you stop looking like a hedgehog.
Be kind to yourself. Be kind to yourself, right now. This minute.Be kind to yourself. Love who you are now. Click To Tweet
This is my art. This is my book. This is my song, This is my dance.
This is me.
Please tell me how you are. I would love to hear from you.
p.s. “This Is Me” won best original song at the Golden Globes on Sunday, January 7th, 2018.
