You are so, so beautiful.
When you’re rushing and late to get to school and work, you’re beautiful.
Laughing so hard with your friends that you’ve got tears in your eyes, you’re beautiful.
Breaking a sweat in the yard while gardening and raking leaves, you’re beautiful.
When you ace that exam that you are so prepared for, you’re beautiful.
Buzzing around your kitchen making something delicious to eat, you’re beautiful.
When you press the snooze button on a Sunday, you’re beautiful.
Each time you give a gift that you just know that they will love, you’re beautiful.
Getting playfully competitive on family games night, you’re beautiful.
And even when you’re angry or worried about the stories you’re hearing on the evening news, you’re beautiful.
When you’re living life to the fullest, that is when your beauty shines through. Even in the tiniest moments. When you open your heart, that is when your natural beauty is the most radiant.
Let’s consider the fundamental purpose of cosmetic blush. We wear blush on our cheeks because it creates that healthy look of an active life filled with loves that make our hearts skip a beat, deep belly laughs, breathing in fresh air, and exciting dreams coming true.
Acne, scars, cellulite, and stretch marks. Rosacea, thinning hair, love handles, and muffin top. Forget about all of these things, at least for minute, and give yourself time to deeply recognize that the truest beauty is you living your life to the fullest; experiencing all of the emotions, and the different colours they bring to your complexion.
So, dig in the sand and search for beach glass. Play in the snowbank and hike down the forest path. Meet with a dear friend at a café for tea. Snuggle your newborn niece or nephew. Admire that kitty sitting in a neighbour’s window. It’s these moments that make our lives beautiful. And they’re also the moments where your own genuine beauty is undeniably radiant.
With so much Love and admiration,
