You know that you in the summer? The one who finally discovered herself, her worth, her value, her beauty. You can't lose that. You cannot lose yourself.
Many times I've seen people so happy on summer break. Happy with themselves and such a different, unique person. Then when school rolls around and they hang out with the wrong crowd...they're whole attitude is changed. They become a totally different person. I'm here to tell you that you don't have to let that happen. It's in your control, and it's your choice.
I've learned so much this summer about myself: I'm strong, I'm God's masterpiece and no one can tell me different, I'm uniquely made to be ME...not the person sitting next to me. People will try to manipulate you into thinking that you have to be a certain way, act a specific way, and dress a way to be noticed, to "fit in". I want you to know that God didn't call you to "fit in", He called you to stand out!
If you've discovered yourself and you know that you're God's, why change? Why change and be so miserable that you can't even stand yourself? You were designed to be something more, you were made to be you! Remember that this school year, when people try to convince you into things you normally wouldn't do, or act a different way to attract someone. Don't change for someone else, unless it's for the complete better. Instead, chase after God, try to be like Him, and find yourself in the midst of Him.
Let your uniqueness fill up the emptiness of this world. ;)
