During the course of our lives, we each create our own self-portraits. With each act, with every decision, with every chain of events we follow, the portraits evolve. Leave a wake of love, faith, and courage wherever you go, and that splendor will reflect itself back onto you. Even if there are a few shadows here and there, those will only deepen the character and perspective. Paint the most stunning portrait you can, and let your beauty shine through.
