I have been reflecting on what beautiful means to me. It has been an evolution – a distant glimmer at times and an engulfing warmth in others.
Through focusing on gratitude as part of my Happiness Project, I have become increasingly aware and thankful for the beauty in my life.
Real beauty to me is compassion, authenticity, curiosity, gratitude, courage. It is the love filled daily effort to find and focus on the positive in all things – our world, our lives, our friends, our family, and in ourselves.
Beauty is not who you are on the outside, it is the wisdom and time you gave away to save another struggling soul, like you. ~Shannon Alder
Let us reclaim this word. Let us restate our worth.
Let us #ChooseBeautiful.
