“Sometimes people are beautiful.
Not in looks.
Not in what they say.
Just in what they are.”
~ Markus Zusak, I Am the Messenger
When you begin to see with your heart, beauty is everywhere.
There is something very beautiful in a Nana rocking a child to sleep in her arms, unselfconsciously singing in the corner of a crowded shopping mall…
…in the old man with his hand in the small of his wife’s back at the x-ray place as she stands nervously at the counter, and then holding her hands as they wait for her name to be called…
There is something very beautiful in a young woman pushing a twisted and contorted young man in a wheelchair… how she leans forward to whisper something to him and his face cracks open with glee, both of them laughing hard and joyfully…
True beauty isn’t seen only with the eyes. It does not conform to the media’s idea of youthful perfection. It cannot be bought, applied or worn.
True beauty is LOVE, radiating out from one heart to another, lighting the world with that special magic and making it a better place for us all.
Live from your heart today. Embrace and own the beauty within you that is Love.
