I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Psalm 139:14.
Today, I accept TheGypsyMama’s 5-minute Friday dare: yet a new tradition here on this blog
BEAUTY is the topic
Today, I forgot to remind myself that my identity is rooted in beauty.
I forgot to begin the day centered. I only saw the flaws in the mirror; the lies.
The irony is that as a Mary Kay Beauty Consultant, my business is centered on making each woman that crosses my path see and believe that she is beautiful.
But does beauty come from makeup, hair accessories, the latest fashion – outside adornments?
Or is beauty hidden in plain sight?
Is beauty church-gals catching up over coffee and laughing hysterically over the re-counting of scary experiences? Is it in the discovery of each other?
Is it the various shades of green found in nature & the bright hot sun?
Is it in the joy of a little girl who is happy to be picked up?
Is it in sampling letting go and being; being myself and living the life I am given now.
Beauty is here. Beauty is a choice to see what has already been there with new eyes.
See that you are beautiful. Just as, I am. Just as HE is, really.
How do you make your world more beautiful, simply by being you?
