There is a popular song on the radio these days called, “Crazy Beautiful.”
I absolutely love the lyrics. I am not sure how much I can type without infringing on a copyright issue, so you can just click here for the link.
We are all beautiful creatures, made in the image of an amazing Creator. And you, yes YOU, have so many attributes about yourself to bless others. Take a moment to look at those wonderful qualities: your smile, your mind, your eyes, your hands, your heart.
Some of us have never been told to search for the beauty in ourselves, let alone in anything else. I can remember when my eyes were finally opened to truly looking and searching for the beautiful things.
A wonderful lady, whom I will call one of my mentors, showed the endless possibilities of finding the beauty in this crazy thing called LIFE. And once I saw it, I couldn’t stop noticing all of the beauty all around me.
Here is a small list of treasures that I know are true in beauty:
- A sunrise and/or sunset
- A newborn baby
- Flowers in bloom
- Water in motion (ocean, stream, rain)
- Children laughing and playing
- A fresh cup of coffee
- Mountains and tall trees
- Hands that hold something gently
- A warmly decorated table of food
- A fire on the hearth
- Two people hugging
As I ponder on becoming process driven through my second-half-journey, I have to remember that I need to be my own kind of beautiful, too. I need to embrace the crazy beautiful that makes me… well, me.
And the same goes for you. Have you embraced your own kind of beautiful? Have you accepted and believed and cherished the things that make you, YOU?
If not, I encourage you to start right now. Stand in front of a mirror and smile. Smile at yourself. If you have lost track of who you are , take a moment to introduce yourself. Get acquainted with the person inside. Embrace her (or him). Show some love.
It may sound crazy, but it’s a beautiful way to live and share your beauty with others.
