I want to feel beautiful.
I want to be able to observe my disfigurations and marks and see strength.
See God's faithfulness.
I want to look in the mirror and see a warrior.
See a fighter.
See a determined woman.
I want to appreciate myself for who I am.
Who I've been.
Who I'm going to be.
I'm tired of comparing myself to others.
Tired of blaming CF.
Tired of seeing all the damage it has done to me.
I am precious.
Despite all of my scars, inside and out.
Despite my physical incapabilities due to CF.
I am loved.
By the God of all creation.
By amazing and encouraging friends and family.
I am unique.
With this life that constantly keeps me on my toes.
With my own personality traits, characteristics, and qualities.
I am (*learning that I am*) beautiful.
