STOP LETTING YOURSELF BE TREATED LIKE A YELLOW STARBURST, REMEMBER YOU ARE A PINK STARBURST!

This shawl design is packed with reminders that you are special. Simple mesh lets the light shine through you. Diamond lace stitches remind you that you are more precious than diamonds. The 34 starburst points represent a gift, talent, or trait that is uniquely you and that makes you extraordinarily special.

If I were to guess which Starbursts you eat first, I would wager that you eat the pink ones, then orange, but save the yellow for last. So often we treat ourselves like those yellow Starbursts. We focus on our flaws and shortcomings instead of celebrating the wonderful creations we in fact are.

Remember, you are a pink Starburst! Never ever let yourself or anyone else tell you otherwise! You are beautiful, both inside and out. I want you to choose to start believing in your personal value. Focus on your beautiful smile and contagious laughter, your dedication, the love you have for your family, or even how marvelous you feel with that hot pink lipstick! Pick ONE thing right now, and focus on it while you knit You Are A Pink Starburst.
