The THESE BOOTS ARE MADE FOR WALKIN' beauty has posted a personal message on her website encouraging her fans to embrace themselves if they want to discover true happiness.
Appearing originally as an unpunctuated stream of consciousness, Simpson writes, "I just wanted to let ya'll know that with everything we go through in life, the good, the bad, the ugly, the sad, the right, the wrong, the-think-we-don't-belong, we all have to allow our hearts to remain open to create who we are.
"Find that for yourself no matter what. Take the advice from the wisdom of those we love. Remember that bad company corrupts good character.
"Breathe to allow yourself the freedom to just be. Getting to know yourself is so important. Spend time alone with your thoughts for this creates a world of true serenity. Do not be afraid. Inner beauty, outward charm - greet everyone we meet with a smile (unless it is paparazzi - haha), a smile is contagious.
"I love you guys so much and appreciate the support through all the unfortunate pain of loss. What doesn't kill us makes stronger. Carry on. Soar. Glide. Fly. This is a wonderful life."
