What sets you apart from everybody else may seem like a burden to you, but it’s not. Most of the time, it is what makes you GREAT! The chances are these “burdens” are what the people around you love about you 🙂
I think that one of the best things that you can do for yourself is to just BE YOU. Don’t try to be like somebody else because in the end, it’s not going to make you truly happy. It is ok to be you, you are you & you are great 🙂
“Be yourself, everybody else is already taken” – Oscar Wilde
For me, a persons true beauty is something that we can not see on the outside. We can’t see this by simply looking at someone. It comes from within. Those who judge other people by just looking at the “cover on the book” may miss out on meeting the most genuine, wonderful people they could ever hope of meeting.
The outer layer is just decoration.
The picture above says it all, some of the most beautiful people that I personally know are the ones who know what it is like to struggle in life. They are the ones who have chosen to use their previous or constant struggles to help others, to offer compassion, love and kindness to others who are struggling. What is more beautiful than that?
One friend of mine in particular has recently started a blog on wordpress “manofwheels” . He is truly a huge inspiration in my life & always will be. He not only inspires me daily but his family and 100’s of friends too. If you’re interested in reading about his story, his blog is http://manofwheels.wordpress.com/
Thank you for taking the time to read my post & I hope that I have reminded or inspired you to seek the inner beauty in the people that you next meet 🙂
You might not know it but you could be inspiring 1, 2, 3….10….100.. people! They might know you, be a part of your family, be a friend, colleague at work or even a complete stranger. You could be doing something kind or brave, big or small. Whatever you’re doing could be inspiring those people in their lives, making it better, giving them the courage or hope that they needed that day.
It could be something so simple…Somebody may pass you on the street, you smile at them & that could have just saved their day. They might have really needed that smile. You never really know what’s going on in some peoples lives so try not to judge people too quickly. Just do what you can in life to help those around you, those people that inspire you in life, tell them 🙂 . Be strong and happy in your own life as much as possible because …you may not know who you are inspiring..xo
P.s. Thank you to anyone who is reading my blog posts, I never thought for a second that I would be seen among the millions of blogs in the land of the internet! I’m still new to this & I’m never really sure what to write, I just write from the heart 🙂
One of the most beautifully magical things that I love to see is the delights of nature at its best.
Every night I find myself standing at my kitchen window, looking out over the grassy field and the trees that surround it and there it is, it never fails to amaze me.
Here is a picture that I took on my phone a few weeks ago, the blue night sky, filled with pink clouds:
Something as simple as looking at the sky at night can just give me that glimmer of hope, hope that tomorrow is going to be a better day and that I can make it through any troubles or worries that I may have.
It reminds me to see the beauty in every day… in every little thing.
Do you know the best thing about nature? You can be anywhere, at any time and you can see it.
So the next time you feel like you need a pick me up, just look around you.
The world may not be perfect, but it IS beautiful…if you take the time to stop, take notice and appreciate the little things in life…xo
