If I had a few wishes to use, this would certainly be one of them.
You are a unique human being.
Nobody in the whole world is made exactly like you.
Be proud of who you are 🙂 ! Don’t waste any energy on wishing you were somebody else, overlooking how special YOU truly are.
Your “flaws” are what make you stand out in the crowd, they are what make you so incredibly beautiful.
In time, I hope you can see just how special you are, as special as you are to me.
(Did you spot the hidden message in this post? Look again. I’m talking to every single person that reads this, don’t count yourself out. You are precious.)
“She was beautiful, but not like those girls in the magazines.
She was beautiful for the way she thought.
She was beautiful for that sparkle in her eyes when she talked about something she loved.
She was beautiful for her ability to make others smile even when she was sad.
No, she wasn’t beautiful for something as temporary as her looks.
She was beautiful, deep down to her soul.”
You don’t just find beauty by using your eyes, open your heart to find the true beauty in life.
This isn’t to say that as you age, you are no longer beautiful because that is so far from the truth.
Just always remember to see past the “decoration” & seek the inner beauty of the soul because that is precious 🙂
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 🙂

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 🙂
