Day 488 - Being Beautiful

Thursday, March 31, 2016

Thank you all so much for your wonderful comments on my post from yesterday where I took you on my walk around the Loop. I love that we live in such a gorgeous spot with fantastic vistas from all over our county. We really do have a little piece of paradise, right here in northern California.

Now I would like direct your attention to another blog post that has moved me so much that I want to share it with those of you who might not otherwise encounter it. My friend Jane posted this:


And for maximum impact, please read my friend JEANNETTE59's (Dottie's) comments before clicking on the link in Jane's post.

I hope you are moved as much as I was.

I think you are all BEAUTIFUL. I am beautiful. We are each blessed with a unique beauty that nobody can take away. Be beautiful today and every day.

And keep Sparking!

    The people are not things and I posted that a smile will transform you, and anger or a negative response will destroy your 'beauty'...it was an interesting blog.

    I've struggled with insecurity in the past (and still today, but happy to say, I'm in control of it..). This is what works for me, knowing I'm a child of God and all life is precious, gives me the courage to love myself and care for this one precious life today as I continue to honor Him by nurturing my body and spirit and by reminding myself daily that "I'm enough".

    Steve and Jane, I love you both and I know my Mom would have loved you too!

    Thank you so much for your kind words. I hope that someone will benefit from my Mom's story.

    For all those who read this please be kind to yourself and to others. Words do matter, you can't take them back, but you can say your sorry.

    Thank you my friend. I loved your idea about the new dress philosophy. Dottie always staggers me with her insight. I am in awe of her. She is one beautiful woman. And you, are SO handsome. I still want to see those 18-year-olds staring at you!! xoxox

    I, too, was moved by Jane's blog, Steve!
    Very good to see you shared the video and directed others to see the blog!
    We really need to know we are beautiful and it doesn't come in a size, shape, color, etc. It comes from being your unique self! That's the part we don't understand, especially when we are younger and trying to "find ourselves"! The secret is we don't have to find ourselves we just need to "be ourselves"!!!
    Love & Hugs,

    I can say " I have ugly thighs", or I can say " I am happy that my thighs are strong so I can exercise and get slimmer"- I am beautiful Fat or Thin! emoticon
