Let me tell you, I do not feel beautiful. How is it that I can look around and find something beautiful in everyone I see, but when it comes to me, I just do not see it.
A few years ago, my sweet hubby brought home that Hello Beautiful sign and put it right in the entryway of our home. He wanted me and everyone else who entered our home to see it and know they are beautiful. He wanted me to see it every time I passed through that entryway.
I was getting a message.
When I went to get my hair done, the stylist had a sign on her mirror that said "BE-YOU-tiful".
Next I saw a post on Facebook that said "Be your own kind of BEAUTIFUL"
I was being bombarded with the message.
Finally I went into a ladies room and found a sticky note attached to the mirror that said "You are BEAUTIFUL! Believe it"
I am getting it everywhere. I need to hear it and see it. I just have a hard time believing it.
In my entire life I have never felt beautiful. Even on my wedding day. Even when I did not have a weight problem. Even as a child.
Now at 70 years old, I am trying to find my way to BEAUTIFUL. My own kind of beautiful. NOt the world's kind of beautiful.
It is not based on weight. It is not based on a contest. It is not being compared to anyone else's. It is uniquely my own. Right now I am using a magnifying glass to search for it. I know it is something I must discover on my own.
I hope each of you feels you own kind of beautiful. If not, please join me on this quest.
