“I want to know if you can see beauty
even when it’s not pretty,
every day, and if you can source your
own life from its presence.”
~ Oriah Mountain Dreamer
Are you seeing beauty everywhere?
Do you see it in the simplest of things, from your head to your toes?
Do you see it in things that were always right under your nose?
I see beauty. I see it in me, in you, in the world.
It’s always there, patiently waiting for that moment, the one in which you pause long enough to see it sparkle, and to recognise that same sparkle within yourself.
Here’s what I know for sure. All the beauty you see in the world, is also in you.
If your breath is taken away by a flower, a cool breeze, a warm sunset, the sparkle of the ocean, then all of that beauty and magic is in you, too. It’s who you are.
Here are all the reasons why I’m beautiful this week:
April 16th: #imbeautifulbecause I believe in love, dreams, and myself.
April 17th: #imbeautifulbecause I wear as many colours as possible so I can always feel like I’m a rainbow 🙂
April 18th: #imbeautifulbecause I am doing the best that I can, and I know that’s enough.
April 19th: #imbeautifulbecause I don’t believe in failure, just lessons learned.
April 20th: #imbeautifulbecause I snort when I laugh 🙂 It’s pretty cute/hysterical 😛
April 21st: #imbeautifulbecause I’ll never really be a ‘grown-up’. I’m always the first one to the swing set 🙂
April 22nd: #imbeautifulbecause I don’t follow the trends; I follow my heart.
