“Who is this I’ve tried so long fight?
Filling my heads with lies that I’m not good enough
Then I heard something in my ear
Tell I’m perfect, now that I know the truth
Time to show and prove…”
—Jazmine Sullivan [“Masterpiece (Mona Lisa)”]
I LOVE Jazmine Sullivan! She’s an incredible talent, and also seems like a cool person in real life. Today’s inspirational jam, “Masterpiece (Mona Lisa)” is one of my favorite songs by her, and I hope you enjoy it as well.
This song is about finally seeing the beauty and abilities within yourself, realizing that every part of you is beautiful. I know I lose confidence in myself, not only physically, but in terms of my skills as well. There’s this small voice in my head that I have to constantly fight, telling me that I’m not good enough or I’m not pretty enough. That I’m simply not enough. Hard as it is, I have to shake off those lies, and believe in myself regardless.
That’s what I want and hope for each of you! We’re all truly perfectly imperfect, and that’s fine. We should each stand confidently in what we bring to the table! Beyond just our appearance, but also our individual gifts in life.
