Do not teach your daughters to be ‘pretty.’

Do not entomb her in a pretty pink tower
and insist that only the degree of her physical appeal
may set her free.
Teach her to fight her way out,
to consume books and spit knowledge
to lesser boys who insist she is just beautiful
and nothing more.

Teach her to love her body
not to manipulate and put a price tag on herself
as a defined worth
she shall be immeasurable
she shall be more than this.

Do not let her break herself down
when the boy in kindergarden hits her
because he likes her.
What are you really teaching her?
Pain and love are not synonymous
neither are pretty and perfection.

Teach her to be kind
to be harsh
to be demure
to be wild
to be sensitive
to be thick-skinned

But good god,

Do not teach your daughters to be ‘pretty.’

“How scary it is
to learn how to trust yourself
all over again.
To stand at the cliff,
look over the edge,
and really see all of the damage
you have done to yourself.
You are believing in your ability
to step back and move along.
You are believing in your ability
to love yourself again.”

i don’t need someone rich, handsome, 6+ ft tall. i just need someone who’ll help raise my imaan when its low, remain quiet when the voices inside my head get too loud, and be gentle with my (many, many, many) flaws.

“Your life is nothing more than a love story. Between you and God. Nothing more. Every person, every experience, every gift, every loss, every pain is sent to your path for one reason and one reason only: to bring you back to Him.”
