5 Ways to Be Beautiful

Deep down inside, we all want to be beautiful in our own way. The trick is bringing out the best in you and others will see your beauty.

I believe there is something beautiful to be found in all of us. Yes, we all have our days when we are not our best spiritually, mentally, emotionally or physically…but even on those day, we are still beautiful.

If you have ever done any act of human kindness for others in the past, present or future…you can honestly say you are beautiful. Here are just a few ways I think beauty is defined.

  1. Take notice of all the beauty around you. Appreciate the small things in life and build upon it.
  2. Have an open heart, an open ear and an open mind to others. Do not judge or assume anyone or anything.
  3. Give without expectations. Someone out there needs someone. Let it be you.
  4. Share the positive. Say or do something nice for others.
  5. Give yourself a break. Realize you are special and unique. Love who you are, flaws and all.

Beauty isn’t about being ‘picture perfect.’

It’s about being you.

Being the best you can be.

Being real.

There comes a point in your life when you start doubting yourself and your abilities The small things that make you happy,those big dreams you promised yourself as a little girl ,everything takes a backseat in your life.

you know why because you started to values someone else more than yourself ,someone who does not know your worth .who overlooks your goodness,your kindness ,and your intelligence. and keep you reminding your faults,your flaws and your failures.eventually you start believing them ,you start focussing on your flaws rather accepting and loving yourself as you are.

you fail to realize that you are theepitome of qualities ,you have always admired in others because“YOU AND I ARE MIRRORS ,WE SEE OURSELVESVES IN OTHERS”.

So always remember.Never ever do that to yourself .Love others but don’t you dare forget yourself when you remember people you love.Do things to make others happy butremember,to…

Lost: One Pair of Rose-Colored Glasses

Yes. My vision was impaired. I didn’t see it coming. And like a slap in the face; my feelings were hurt and  disappointment was my new best friend.

That’s what happens when you wear rose-colored glasses.

What did I do wrong? Nothing and everything.

Let’s get realistic. Life without disappointment is simply unheard of.  As humans, we have certain expectations and when things just don’t work the way we expect; disappointment sets in.  And that’s where I’m at!  Disappointed!

I tend to be somewhat of an optimist. Yes, I sometimes wear the rose-colored glasses and often focus on the positive rather than the negative. I try to see the good in all people. Is that so wrong? Yes and No.

It’s not wrong to want better. It’s not wrong to expect better;  as long as you realize that not everyone thinks like you. Another persons level of expectation may not be set that high which usually leads to some form of disappointment.

Great expectations can cause even greater disappointments.

Just when you think you know someone, that’s when the unexpected happens. That’s when disappointment happens in a way you could never imagine.

Is it wrong for me to try to see the best in every person and in every situation? No.  But I think I have a higher expectation of others because I am willing to go to that higher level for them. And that’s where I go wrong.  The effort I put forth for others may not come back the same and then I realize, I’m not as important as I thought I was.

OUCH! THAT HURTS! 😦

So, what’s a person to do when they lose that rosy image of all they thought was good?  Find the beauty in the disappointment. And here’s how:

  • Use the weight of the disappointment as a stepping stone rather than a burden. Find one lesson learned, smile and move on.
  • Take the rose-colored glass off periodically to get a different perspective. It’s ok to wear them; just don’t rely on them to always have an accurate view.
  • Listen to that inner voice. It usually sees with a 20/20 vision.
  • Accept it for what it is. No more or no less.
  • Finding beauty in disappointment will bring clarity to life itself.  As long as the pain remains temporary, the beauty lasts a lifetime.
  • Lean on the One who will never disappoint. God knows your hurts. He’s the ultimate Pick-Me-Up!  (Romans 5:5 NKJV)

Life’s disappointments have a way of teaching us to be flexible in our thinking. We can either focus on the problem or focus on the possibilities despite the problem. Life’s disappointments make us feel when we sometimes otherwise won’t or don’t. Emotions are explored and we live and learn. Life’s disappointments teach us acceptance. To accept the changes and move forward as a stronger person than before.

Some people come into our lives for just a season. They teach us, make us and mold us to be better. They can bring out the best in us through the disappointments.  They remind us of our purpose. Our purpose is to always bring glory to God…even through our disappointments.

Until next time,

Live, Love & Learn
